April 9th – Hatred

Just hatred.. the world seems to run on hatred sometimes. We hate our jobs, so we run trying to find a better one. We get hurt, we hate the one we hurt and we run looking for opportunities to hurt them back.. or run away from them, never wanting to get hurt again. We fail and we hate failure… so we run trying to avoid it again, or run to it inadvertently running away from optimism. We hate love sometimes, and try to run away from that, never realizing that love is not just romantic, it has many forms. We tend to hate ourselves too, and yes, we do try to run from ourselves, our reflections, don’t we? I’m pretty sure all of us have tried running away from ourselves. Hatred to our enemies is a sort of love I feel, we love to hate them don’t we? I’ve a few and I usually end up making plans how to make their lowly life even more miserable! Oh yes, hatred runs our life a lot. I think we’ve been upset with our parents too and used the word hate with them, even though we may not have really meant it at all. Most of the thing we hate cannot be changed in the future perhaps, but yeah.. we all at some time in life have loved to hate, and also hated to love. Another part of life that’s worth living. Yin and yang. How different, yet so alike the two aren’t they? Love and hate.. Both trying to run the world, yet only together I feel, they manage to do an unbelievable job.






Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. A popular adage says: "the more you hate, the more you love"…:)I found that line in here, though not expressed in like manner.Your essay is full of morals, one can learn a lot. But loving and hating? Synonymous in so many ways…I may hate someone because he doesn't love and I may love someone to turn the hatred into a better thing!Arggghhhhh…quite difficult!Thumbs up for such wonderful thoughts!:)

  2. Leo..this was wonderful!!!I could relate more with this now …And yeah the closing lines was just too too good 🙂 I loved this "hatred" :):D
