Angel of Darkness

I Hated Me First

Here we go again
You're all in my face
You keep telling me
That I should know my place

You say where I should be
But you cant see where I'm standing
So before you direct traffic
Check again who you're branding

You only dislike me
Cuz they say I'm the worst
But let's get one thing straight
I hated me first

If you think I'm pathetic
I thought that before you
If you think I am darkness
Well, that's nothing new

If you only burn me
Cuz you think it's cool
You copied me
So now who's the fool?

If you wish I was dead
It's already been wished
Trust me, you weren't the one
Who added the first stitch

You say I'm not straight
I'm gay and unpleasant
Well, you're so deep in the closet
You're finding Christmas presents

Hurting me's a fad
I started that trend
But I guess no one told you
It came to an end

You said, 'Go to Hell'
Well, I'll see you there!
Cuz then it will be my turn
To poison your air

I'll return every insult
With physical pain
I will be happy
When my anger's drained

I will not hold back
I'll be waiting for you
So I dare ya
Go ahead and continue

    You are very talented but you need to love yourself. I know
    there are so many things about you to love. Just be true to
    you, my friend. The rest of the world will have to get used to
    it. God bless you.

    I feel bad to say it was funny because at the same time it is sad and also true. I think many people feel out of place and the best way to avoid what other people say is to know it yourself. Great poem. I loved it.

    I love this poem! I should say this when I'm arguing with my friend. She told me she hated me the other day but I hated myself more than anyone else possibly could. Thnx for sharing, Angel of Darkness!
