  Hate

An emotion so draining; an emotion all consuming

Constantly on the edge of a black abyss

A dead weight that pulls you down

Makes you blind to other emotions, alone in the darkness

It’s such a waste of both energy and time

You’re carrying much more than you should

It's all you think of, the basis of your plan

to get revenge, and you’d make it hurt if you could

If you’d stop and think about it, you’d see the truth,

but you’re so consumed by vengeance, you’ll never see

It’s taken me years, until at last I realized

Hatred is a dead-end, that takes away from me
