Hate Speaks

by Boogienights

Let me introduce myself...

I am Hate.

I permeate your soul,
I negate
everything that's good.
Underneath a happy facade
I am seething,
you are barely breathing.
Waiting to explode
like I should.
Won't hold back my wrath
though I could.

I am Hate.

Causing pain,
chaos reigns when
I release,
hurt ensues.
Love is lost,
humanity tossed
into the fire.
The cost is great,
still I don't hesitate.

I am Hate.

It's fate
that I will always
be here.
Fueled by anguish,
envy, fear.
You could let me go
but I embrace you.
trap your soul
until your heart's
an empty hole.

I am Hate.

Witness to every war.
Every senseless
hateful words
that keep repeating.
I cause all this
and more.

I am Hate.

As long as this
world turns,
people suffer,
cities burn.
I will be there,
you will see.
Inside of you all
there's a place for me.
