It's Easier to be Hated

It's easier to be alone where you know no one can touch you.
It's easier to be alone because you don't have to care for anyone.
It's easier to be alone because you know you can't hurt anyone.
It's easier to be alone because it's easier to cry alone.

It's harder being surrounded in the people you love because you know they can touch you.
It's harder to care for people because you know you have the power to hurt them.
It's harder to be in their presence because you know that eventually you will hurt them.
It's harder to be in hurt because you know that you are hurt because you hurt them.

It's not a possibility to see that it's easier to be hated than cared for.
It's not a possibility to see that you really do love but it's harder to not hate.

I just want to be alone.
Away from my loved ones.
It'd just be so much easier if they'd hate me.
