How To Hate
We can’t expect everyone to love themselves in the same way.
Not when our bodies and minds have their owns doos and don’ts.
Same as you can’t love different people in the same way.
Same as hatred for a group of people –
real deep engaged hate
Well that doesn’t make sense
Because to really hate
You’d have to hate everyone differently
Because to hate, you have had to have loved a person
And to love you need to have known
And how can you know a whole group of people you’ve never met in their entirety?
I mean hate – not reflect your self-hatred on to
I mean hate because you let them reach inside your chest
Feel the heat
Gently clasp your heart
And they tore it out
and ate it for breakfast
like they were cleaning up the last crumbs of toast from their plate
hate because you let them feel the pulse of your veins
your blood run on to their arms
so they could feel the exact temperature
of your specific genetic make up/blood type
and then they drank it as if it was
a random fizzy drink that they picked up for 50p
in the reduced section at tesco
love in the way you need
in the native language your body speaks
otherwise you’re just speaking over yourself
