Hate what a simple word

Hate a word that will dismay many

Hate is for the reason that many kill

All for in the name of hate

We were taught to be compassionate and loving

To treat our neighbors the way we want to be treated

With hate?

Love, ahh love what a wonderful word

The truth is that it wasn’t l o v e

It was just an illusion

Tricks up your sleeve and nothing up mine

See hearts break and are malleable

So I tried to change yours

Instead mine got torn

Ahhh love, love

Me

Never will you?
