hate speech pt. 1

If this were words on paper 

They would be red

A seething tone of disappointment

Astonishment 

and disbelief. 

People carry the hatred within for so long 

They burn up 

And it spews forth 

When the trigger is pulled 

by something they cannot–no–

WILL NOT 

Comprehend.

 It is a vice, a disease 

A heavy burden for them to carry 

when the answer is simple: 

Be kind. Be respectful. But no. 

It is always mangled by the mass opinions 

Of those who have no business 

Showering the rest of us with their spiteful tongue’s spit of evil. 

They mistake passive aggressive behavior 

As courage 

Long and lengthy paragraphs 

As intelligence 

And another’s silence as weakness.
