Hatred is a truly ugly thing
Born of spiders, snakes and devil’s wings.
It grows and spreads; diminishing light
Leaving darkness to color the night.
It festers to erase affection.
It turns lives another direction.
It kills love even in a pure form.
It blacks out the sun to start a storm.
It wrecks the lives of those it chooses.
Everyone who’s infested loses.
Hatred is Lucifer’s most prized tool.
With it, he feels he’s destined to rule.
Only love can make hate disappear;
Clear the road and make the pathway clear.
It is an easy choice for the few;
A difficult one for some to view.
That leaves the question: Which one are you?
