The Demon Emotion

     I have been so blessed in my life, from my family upbringing, to my core spiritual education, and maybe it’s  just my basic personality but, I cannot bring myself to hate.. Not people at least, oh sure, I may hate some things in life, and hate some things that people do to each other but, “I will not carry hate within my heart, for the weight of which, will only serve to tear apart.”

     I hope you love this poem,


The Demon Emotion

Hate is the demon emotion.

With more ease, you could empty an ocean,

than to cleanse out the heart

that gives loathing it’s start.

And from there, will then demand,

full devotion!

    I know it is true that “hate” takes up too much of a person so why do some people constantly go out of their way to hurt. I have never in my 63 years ever encountered more “hate ” from a person that I really don’t believe I have ever done anything to.. I really cannot fathom how cruel and downright mean a person is for What?? All I know is that in my worst of the worst situations I would never fabricate, insinuate or try to destroy another human the way this person has done to me… My livelihood is in serious jeopardy and I don”t even have to be at work..Your poem Just brought this to the surface…sorry
