Hate

Let me not to the hatred of true minds
Reject impediments. Hate is not hate
That forgives, accepts, and binds,
But bends the other and doesn’t wait.
O yes, they will never help
one another, but create tempests to shake.
All the way to the stars they will yelp
Until the end. From each other they will gladly take.
Hate’s life’s fool, evil and mean,
rude and horrid, without love.
Hate changes each other and sets life’s scene,
And never ends. Unlike love it will remove
your hopes and dreams. Because it has happened
Before and will again. And at one point, everyone has hated.
