Little Do We Know

Why do we hate?
Do we do so in order to escape,
from the ones who leave us tender from betray?

A defense against surrender?
An attempt to circumvent?
A desperate plea we don’t readily see?  

How do we set ourselves free,
from the smoke and debris,
from the force which catapulted our soul,
into a realm unbeknown?

That’s it! Unbeknown!
We obsess over control,
but little do we know…

So long, old friend!!!
Silence eloquently amends.

When a seed of hurt germinates,
everything else, a mere trend.

Ripples on our oceans,
brutal, skin slashing breeze,

even the largest unsteady trees that rattle,
eventually learn to calm and settle,

becoming nature’s provision of what I like to think of as
our immensely hard earned Metal.

Who is he?
What does he want?

To stomp all over me
like another did once?

Ha! Not this time!
Guarded shall remain mine!

I will never let him in! 
 ...this is exactly how they win.
