Faded Hatred

It's never good to hold onto hate.

Image by 706341 on Pixabay

The fiery feeling that

fills your heart

with loathing

and anger that is

none too quick to leave.

It can consume your

life, turning you into

an unrecognizable monster.

It controls you and makes

you build an army to

feel justified.

Sitting in a dimly lit room

with plans plastered all over the

walls you ask yourself,


The feeling fades

and you’re left with the

realization that none of it

matters anymore.

The hatred stopped a long

time ago, but you tried to

bring it back to life each

and every time.

After a few years,

that hatred turns to love.

And you can forgive again.
