Love, Hate And My Fate

In my quest of life sublime
I face a mountain I must climb

There dwells up inside of me
A growing amount of hostility

My anger is growing day by day
Regardless of the prayers I pray

Like two grinding tectonic plates
One is love and the other is hate

As the plates slowly grind away
Price of hate my love must pay

Like a beautiful exotic dance
Hate is held in dark romance

Like a lone mountain flower
Love shall hold mystic power

The two sides of a single face
Only one can rule this place

Off to hell fallen angels go
Is this the fate of my soul?

Is the meaning of this rhyme?
Bound by the hands of time

For all to hear and all to see
Love and hate each dwell in me

Love and hate each have their goal
I wonder, which shall win my soul

    This was a good read. No one is perfect and loving all the time. Each of us has felt hate but it's our reaction to it that's important. It's much easier to love that to expend so much energy on hate.

    You've come too far to let hate win, Michael. My son fights a battle with alcohol and anger. He still doesn't realize what holding on to the hatred is doing. At times I see some improvement. I don't believe he realizes how proud I am of him, but I keep praying. Glad to see that lifetime membership. It means poetry soup is hanging onto one of its finest. God Bless. Vince

    It is good to see you posting incredible poetry again, Michael, strong words indeed.....but love will always win a heart as big as your own....no question about that. Your soul is in God's hands....of that I am sure.
