Hate, so small a word.
Yet I embrace it.
I hold it inside.
It keeps me warm.

Tell me world.
You say do not hate.
You say love is all.
Hate is a small death.

I say hate is all.
Hate the stupidity.
Hate the smallmindedness.
Hate the love of the mundane.

We are become 'society'.
loving only mediocrity.
Where we dismiss all else
And embrace exclusion.

We must learn to hate.
To excel and fly.
To be more than we were.
To drive ourselves on.

To hate ones self.
To know we can be more.
To hate a society.
To hate conformity.

These are the things.
The things that made us.
Created a free world.
Not love. Never love.

Conformity made us blind.
Indifference made us nothing.
Without hate, no passion.
Without hate, no love.

So we are here,
Slowly we de-evolve
back to the trees.
One Reality show at a time.

The hate, let it fill you.
Look on ye mighty and tremble
for I am great
and you are small.

Rise up, allow hate wings
and watch us soar.
Feel its heat fuel you.
Feel its cold certainty fill you.

Its in you, grasp it.
Let it in.
No longer accept,
A million small sins.

Rise up I say.
Rise against the oppressive.
Rise against the bigots.
Rise against the everyday.

Allow your hate to guide you.
Let your mind retake control.
Take back the world,
that slips from us.

No longer do we accept.
No longer stand idle.
No longer one of many.
Now you become one.

Claim back your hate.
Hold it. Own it.
It is yours at your will.
We can be reborn.

I aint as good as I once was but I'm as good, once, as I ever was. - Toby Keith

A thought-provoking piece!
But... no, I think.
I could hardly follow such advice, for in my life every time I tried to hate, I felt very disappointed by the result. It wasn't that I really wanted (((
Maybe hate is from helplessness, because if only you knew that your hate courts a real disaster, would you want to feel it?
I think it's not very clever. If our wishes don't come true, then hatred has no meaning, for it makes nothing. But if they come, then it has even less sense, because there is more logic in wishing good things than bad ones )))

On the circle of life, hate is closest to love, so, I guess it should teach us to think rationally rather than emotionally

Ah, hate evil and its ignorant spawn...

Given we are creatures prone to hate there rings some logic here. In priciple I believe I must agree.  But still, I stay my standard of, love them all, let God sort them out.
