hate

hate is like acid 
eating away at your soul
making you bitter 
and scared from sharp words
hate is invisible
until it's not 
hiding under sickly sweet smiles
and seeping into your thoughts
hate is like poison 
spreading through the veins of society 
breaking families apart 
not caring who's crying
hate is a fire
unkept and made wild
by the vengeful desires 
of those wronged and hurt 
by the same blaze 
a viscous cycle 
fueled by harmful ways 
hate lingers inside 
grudges become glorified
wrongs that were simple
made from ant to elephant 
in one simple gesture
stop
listen up 
that hatred you harbor
it only hurts others 
makes them feel like you
is that what you want?
I thought not.
​let it go.
