HateA Poem by Voxharmony
Some prose I wrote for a class back in highschool.. the challenge was to describe without outright mentioning what you're writing about... this was the result..
In the beginning it is small, perhaps even insignificant as it clings to the breath it seizes from the attention we give.
Seeded by lies and fed through hypocrisy, it grows in resemblance to ignorance.
Masked in many different auras, its subtle yet rapidly burgeoning smog will engulf and possess even the most innocent and angelic people.
It is heartless,
It is vicious,
Yet its evil has become commonplace,
Blending and concealing its destructive capacity within our societal norms.
Seeping through us, it has caused an unhealthy bleed of human ethics and common sense.
It is our condescending glances,
Our swift lashes of the tongue,
Our assumed intelligence,
Our blatant ignorance.
Symptoms, subtle but toxic indicia of a decaying respect for humanity,
It destroys us,
And we don’t seem to care.
