My hurt that can't be seen
The pain that came
At the end of my dream

It's presense, a horrible thing
I want to let go
But it just seems to cling

It's maker, still walking around
Unaware of my worries
How hard I feel down

I need to hate
But love gets in the way
It holds my rages and makes me to 

Am I the fool
That you want me to be?
It isn't cool what was done to me

What should come 
At the end of a dream?
When the star has been broken and 
ruined the theme

I will survive
But just this one thing
I'm letting go if you can't fix this 

(Dedicated to Colleen Bono)

    i need to.hate but love gets in the way.Tnks God that love keeps getting in the way especially when we re angry enough at something to make us in need of hate.Tnks God we re not able to hate cos its love which gives us freedom and hate which drags our soul.Powerful poem we all can relate times.nn
