Void Of Hate
When your heart turns as cold and empty as the deepest void,
And your spirit is filled with deep hatred, and becomes paranoid,
Through fearful eyes you can see only prejudice, and mistrust,
And you feel that everyone is treating you unfairly and unjust.
You can hide away from it all, like an animal in hibernation,
And then deny and lie your way through every accusation.
You can cheat and steal, and then take someone's dignity,
And once again turn inward, wallowing in your own self pity.
All you will have done is to make a tough life much tougher,
And in the bitter end, however, it is only you who will suffer.
Your twisted mind will explode in psychotic episodes and pain,
And the person you once wanted to be, will flicker and wane.
Stop the downward spiral ! Throw off the shackles of hate !
Honor others as you wish to be honored ! Its never too late !
Seek help and council from others, in this there is no shame !
Come to the Gods, and lay down before Them your blame !
