Why Hate Me

Mon, 05/13/2013 - 19:34 -- Olyvia

Why Hate Me because my skin is the color of the earth
Why Hate Me and despise me at birth
Why Hate Me with the depths of your soul
When you are the one with stories untold

Why Hate Me because my skin is dark
Why Hate Me and set fire to my body to watch it spark
Why Hate Me if I am not a threat
I promise this pain you cause, will only lead you to regret

Why Hate Me if I caused no harm to you
Why Hate Me and carry my fate across an ocean so blue
Why Hate Me when I am the one who internally and externally hurts
Why is it now that guilt has made you so alert

Why Hate Me when all I gave you was respect
Why Hate Me and I am the one whose world is wrecked
Why Hate Me when my body has been distorted
When most of my troubles will never be reported

Why Hate Me when all I wanted to be was free
Why Hate Me and envy me for so many years; while you overlooked my silent tears
Why Hate Me when I am the one who should feel this way
When I look at you instead all I can do is pray

I pray that I forgive you because of my strength
I pray that I forgive you because of my faith
I pray that I forgive you because of our shared past
I pray that you know the scars you left will forever last
