Let go and live.

The difference between love and hate,
is a small invisible line.
Some don't know it,
till they've crossed it.
While some have a foot planted on either side.
Love it changed to hate by,
rejection, lies, and tragedy.
Hate it turned to love by,
Forgiveness, enlightenment, and new memories.
People observe it everyday,
and it will never truly go away.
Both sides playing a game of tug-a-war,
fated to be tied.
No one side wins
No one side loses,
Because love and hate are one in the same
a double sided coin.
were one falls the other is always close behind.

I'd just change "were" to "where," but besides that, beautiful poem. Reminded me of the saying "fear is the heart of love, so i never went back..." This poem keeps me thinking.

I truly enjoyed reading this! There was only a few errors but it didn't distract from the objective of the poem. The rhythm, the message, the detail, it's beautiful! Honestly, I'm shocked this hasn't been published in the magazine. :)

Interesting assessment of love and hate lol. I'm not much of an analyser, but I do like this poem's wording, for instance you described it as a double sided coin XD a first view for me lol well done
