Hate In Me


Is it me that hates...
Or you?
To put it on me
Make it part of me
Make my innards wrack

Do you want hate in me?
Where trust once was?
And balance flowed in and out?
Where time healed wounds
And humility reigned?

You put hate on me
Made me wear those clothes
Walk in shame
Wrestle with blame
Seek hurt and revenge
And tear apart my soul.

You made me ugly
And put my heart to a test.
It did not seek or know
And then you blamed me
For succumbing
To all the injustice
Ever there was.
Keep it away from me
The hurt is too deep.
