Afterthought 1427—With Your Hate

Posted in nothing special by maggie on 2016/11/24

Why let yourself be so consumed with hate
for whom you once knew as your soul mate?
You steal from yesterday to borrow
today to sacrifice your one tomorrow.

Why settle for your favorite second rate?
Why let yourself be so consumed with hate?
You wrap yourself in the same old nothing new
for hating the one you're doing it to.

Almost more than you hate your own
self, you hate him who loved you alone.
Why let yourself be so consumed with hate
as though not by choice, as if innate?

Hatred's tumor is never benign:
death waits to end its hater's line
yet you can't stop until too late.
Why let yourself be so consumed with hate?
