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.
