The Beast In Humans - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

It hisses inside like a serpent
spitting its venom of hate,
giving birth to vengeance
spattered by blood and death.

The serpent of hate, the
birth and rebirth of vengeance,
gives no room for peace,
no room for forgiveness.

And the kingdom of the beast
is recoiled by the serpent
that hisses without rest.
And the venom spreads darkness.
