I Hate Hate

By , milford, IN

A few extreme people give the majority a bad name.
I hate to see people:
Representing people by repressing other people
And giving them a bad name.
One lunatic shouldn’t represent the masses!
I hate it!
“Wow you’re religious?”
Why is that so shocking?
“But you don’t seem crazy.”
Because I don’t want to act crazy.
And give everyone a bad name.
“But you’re friends with people whose beliefs go against your religion?”
Just because we don’t agree that doesn’t make me hate you.
Religion can breed hate.
I admit it
I know it’s true
But so do politics and having rival sports teams!
I’m a kid what do you expect me to do!?
“So that means you must hate X,Y, and Z!”
No that was just someone giving everyone a bad name.
One lunatic doesn’t represent the masses!
I’d love to say I don’t hate.
But I know sometimes I do
My vocabulary limits me to use it, while others constantly abuse it.
Throwing around hate like confetti
Sprinkling it in the name of something they’ve gotten twisted.
“But I heard- But I thought- Didn’t you see what they did on the news?”
I know you did, I know you do, and it flat out made me sick.
“Such a hateful thing! Done in the name of religion!”
My religion? Your religion? Whose religion?
I’m a kid what do you expect me to do!?
I think stuff like that is appalling!
Intentional destruction and death?
They aren’t a message!
They’re a crime!
The thought that people think those actions are acceptable!
I hate it!
But that's what happens when one person
makes a Subway sandwich of religion
They pick and choose.
Then go and do: something crazy!
And they give everyone a bad name.
But I can’t stop them, I’m a kid what do  you expect me to do!?
That doesn’t make us all crazy
That doesn’t make you all crazy
That's just one person can give us all a bad name
That's just one person can give us you a bad name
A few extreme people give the majority a bad name.
I hate to see people:
Representing people by repressing other people
And giving them a bad name.
One lunatic shouldn’t represent the masses!
I hate it!
“Wow you’re religious?”
