Poem - When Dislike

The poem “When Dislike” is about a form of depression that begins with hatred of the self.  This extreme form of self-worth degradation becomes a negative emotion against the world.

When Dislike

When dislike becomes ingrained
a statement made to the self
those who choose to love the same
are discarded in folly’s blame

the ones most loyal to the cause
by sake of blood or something more
are cast aside lest the care
bring some hope to angst declared

the doom is fully self-avowed
that happiness cannot be found
now the world knows only pain
sharing this with sharp disdain.

to damn the self becomes the charge
with no allowance for outside grace
when dislike becomes ingrained
a hate for all is life remained.
