One of the worst things to work through is hate. You have to be honest enough with yourself to identify it and once you have, you had best get it out of your system as soon as what you possibly can. Writing is my most civilised way

I have

hated once before in

my life. It wasn’t good, but

I hated. I didn’t know I was able

to, but I somehow managed. I thought

I was over it, I am, I have forgiven and

carried on and seek to amend. That unfor-

tunately has to wait. I have realized some-

thing today. The thin line between LOVE and

HATE is Trust. Truth, and above all TRUST.

I don’t  trust, and the hurt has plucked hard

enough on the line of truth that I have lost

my balance and have fallen into what I

can only, regretfully presume to be

hate. I am sorry, Lord. Please

forgive me, and turn. This

hate into forgiveness And

the right kind Of love.

Let me not give up

On life and love as

You intended for

me to have. I

love You,

and it
