"Love and Hate are two sides of the same coin."

Everybody keeps pressuring
All these pills and toxic pleasures
Exercise and eating healthy
Because everyone wants to see

A pristine doll
A clean lip
A beach body,
Catch my drift?

But bullets and blades
Come out of your throat
And tear me down until I lose all hope

Favorite Quote:
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
― Ernest Hemingway

Short and to the point. Good poem!
