Hurt, Hate & Forgiveness


-We’ve all been hurt.

Can you tell me the one thing scientists failed to mention on the food chain that constantly preys on us as people? What I speak of is something that we allow to take place. We create the very fangs that it uses to consume the most essential parts of us being human. So what did you come up with? So what am I talking about? Well, what I speak of…

Is That Monster Named “HATE”

HATE is a parasite that attaches itself to the center of our hearts. When it first makes nest, the effects are not as obvious as it is as time passes by. As time passes, it grows and it consumes, eating its host alive, many times without them even knowing. It’s very common for those who suffer from HATE to ignore its signs, for the sake of pride, but time reveals all damage, and the longer you take to address the problem, the larger the parasite will grow. How does HATE know where to go? Why does it survive within us for so long? Why do we try to ignore it as it eats and devours us as people? Why?

With HATE being so closely linked to HURT, it’s no wonder why it’s so common on people with emotions. Betrayal, Infidelity, Mistrust, just some of factors that link to such a monster being born. We’ve all harbored this parasite from one time to another. We’ve all been hurt. Who hasn’t? The question is, “Is HATE still within us?

Is HATE still within us?

How is HATE removed? How is HATE destroyed? How is it vanquished? Well, for every action, there’s a reaction, and HATE isn’t at the very top of the food chain. You see, there is something that when applied to the heart neutralizes what eventually destroy us. Something divine, something more powerful than HATE, and what I speak of is FORGIVENESS. HATE stands no chance against FORGIVENESS. FORGIVENESS may take some time to acquire, depending on the level of HURT, but once the right dose is administered, HATE shall be removed. Most people mistake the terms “TIME and FORGIVENESS”, but TIME won’t ever heal emotional wounds, for the only thing that can do so, is FORGIVINESS.

I have always been the type to write about forgiveness and moving on, but my art surely wasn’t imitating life at all. Many times I write things that mirror what I’m going through in life, it’s like someone is guiding me and counseling me through tough times, but I ignore the voices and words that I myself have written. Forgiveness is the only real way to heal an emotional wound.

There’s a slight shadow on the center of my heart where Hate used to reside, Hate is gone now. Within time that shadow shall be gone too, and it will be as though nothing ever existed. Hate fed off me long enough, way too longer than it should have and I’m so glad that it’s gone. My heart works a whole lot less now, it gives life to the parts of me that needs it. No more unwanted guests. No more trying to forget, no more Hate…

For I Have Forgiven.

    I had a beautiful childhood , until my teenagehood where a cloud hung over me(it is how I can define it), with all the physical and emotional abuse from the people I should be taking refuge to, people closer to me, they are the ones who mistreated me in many bad ways than one. I was disappointed , I took refuge in my own body, I became less talkative, it developed to hurt from hurt to anger then HATE. From there on I was never keen on anything, I became a wall. An ocean of HATE, I lived in it, I drank it, bathe in it, it was an endless river that stretched as far as people who tried to reach me, they could not, I could not allow them. Like a Garment I wore it , literally drinking my own poison.
    I confined myself, in my own penitentiary, it is where I thought I was safe but instead I swelled up in HATRED, I HATED everything, myself included.
    Then one morning I found it hard to wake up, chest pains, my whole body was heavy, Anger, HATE eating its owner.
    Then I shaved my hair because ( my companion of 7 long years all the agony was in my hair ) it felt heaviest than ever.
    I dusted myself off of all the HATE,
    I am a better person now, Life is easier, I can breath, my soul is light in the centre of emptiness, my life is love
    FORGIVENESS IS LIGHT.

    …………………………………..
    This has been my secret till now.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
    May you be Blessed for eternity

    Truely poetic and touching, I can surely relate to what you’ve gone through, it’s a beautiful feeling, I know, a vanished burdened. Forgiviness is light, both figurative and literal. Thanks for sharing, it means much…

      Hi there Thomas

      I bumped into these comments; I’m teary and laughing at the same time. Wow… I can’t believe I shared all these things with you. I must have felt comfortable or perhaps your writing made my mind conjure some superman who can make me forget about all those staff.
      How is it even possible that mention those to anyone? Mister I should come wherever you are, thank you personally for making me expose my secrets immortally in a blog.mmm too much exposure. Lol ( it’s not funny:))
      Where in the Virgin Islands are you from?
