Where does hate come from? by Andrea

Where does hate come from?
Does it come from the mind like some distant creature trying to find a way out? Screaming like a mad-driven bird ready to pluck the very eyes out of every human being?
Does it come quietly like a wind just before a hurricane, softly blowing through the trees?
Does it come like a sword stabbing you until you cry mercy and yet still wills itself,
To bury a scar so deep that when one touches there the pain will still be new?
Does hate come from our imaginations, a little part of us that wants to hope
That the bible is not true and that as humans we invented hate?
I tell you this, hate comes from a power that destroys this world and drives us all mad
It turns our world upside down as a daily reminder that this being still exists.
He lives in our hearts until we can let go to the one high power who lives in
The earth and the trees and the sky.
If you release this one hold that this creature has over you, then hate will
Be nothing more than a memory
