Beginning Of Hell


What do you do with hate?

Go back to the beginning
And search for the roots?
Step back farther...
Step by step...
Into the vacuum of life...
Or the beginnings of hell?

Do you bless it with understanding
And search for excuses
To forgive... to rectify it?
Do you suffer for injustices
That happen to everyone
And let them congeal in yourself?

What do you do with hate?
Suffer for the whole world?
Be an endless victim?

Maybe so.
And as it flows out of you
Let it drip as blood drips
Slowly... peacefully...
Back to the roots
Mixed with forgiveness
And an understanding
That sets things straight again.
