Hate's human folly—
A most tragic emotion,
A sign of despair . . . 
       It splits people asunder . . . 
Brings sadness and wounds the soul!

Toe to Toe

They stand toe to toe
Neither will give up their ground
A battle for fools
For they both possess great strength
One will be destroyed today
The winner receives no prize
The blood screams out from his hands
For him there's no sleep
Glassy eyes peer from the dark
Brother dead on ground

Trying out Harry Horsman's toe to toe tanka.

Why Does She Hate Me

Unconscionable She attacks my weak ego My sure existence I hurt with ultimate pain Crushing my very being She destroys my peace All which brings pleasure to me Sure does falter here I don’t know her reasoning For my love is hers alone

Love and Hate

They say love and hate

    Closest thing to each other

        Who are they that say

            Rather be alone with love

               Than coupled along with hate...

There are two visions 
The irresponsible bygone
And the impending  
Together they disappoint…big 
As we just live in the now. 

Violent young men 
Use the religion of Islam 
To commit misdeed

Guilt And Guilty

You are disturbed less
But you have destroyed the much
Thus you make chaos
You say that you are guiltless
All the others have made this.

tears of hate

I cry tears of hate
as i weap under the moon

to be touched by even love

I hate the truth

I hate the truth
You have seen enough of me
Our dreams are dead
The savage biloko
Feasts on our feint hopes

Biloko:it is a man/tiger beast combination.it tyrranizes the jungles of congo.it drinks the blood of unfaithful lovers to survive

Curse of Hate

The witches held men Up against the wall of pain Where they are shackled To take the brunt of the curse Leaving them helpless to hate They will infect more Of their own people in town Creating hate throughout The townsfolk fear their return How they will spread hate around Death sure soon follows To kill the many lost ones The curse will live on Through the few that were taken Where Halloween brought a curse

poor wounded child -
they did something bad to you
and it caused you pain
but you let them have your life 
so - now - who is it you hate?

My sins are a disease infecting me swiftly
Yet I believe judgment was passed rather quickly
We all are weak in times of stress

It’s only baby steps to freedom, and I crawl slow
Speed up-Go Faster-so your spirit can grow.
But I have hatred in my heart and evil in my brain.
	Formed to habits that drive me Insane

It’s all my fault and I will take the blame
For causing you and yours all this shame
So I will be gone and you will be here
Judgment passed quickly, I shed not another tear

I beg of you now, please understand my plea
This didn’t have to happen, I used to be Free
Judgment passed quickly, too much gossip to tell
The Book and the Sin, will I burn in Hell?

	Hatred in my heart

I hate bronze

I hate bronze
Do not bosa nosa with silver
Win the gold
The neglected stone 
And my heart forever

President Trump fails
Again. "White Supremacists"
Why so hard to say?
"All sides?" That's a fallacy!
Trump's cowardice knows no bounds

Condemn em' clearly
KKK, Neo-Nazis
Killed a young woman
"Domestic terrorism"
Say it, Mr. President

Bold Rough

smile totally free
a sluggard tissue shall die
who does not know how to smile!
the rough bold lippy one way
