26. Hatred

by Debra White

Hatred is a weighty word, 
heavier than others heard.
Fiery feelings fuelled and stirred -- 
Lighter choice of words preferred.

Hatred's bitter,
Hatred's strong.
Hatred screams a hostile song.
Hatred's angry,
Hatred's raw.
Hatred's icy -- Let it thaw.



Written unapologetically from my own point of view.
Perhaps I've been living in a protected bubble my whole life, but the concept of hate is alien to me. I believe that life is too short to waste it on feeding such a negative feeling.
