Wreaking Violence


People mired
in the darkness of rage
let hatred govern
in society's myriad
nether crevices.
They are cockroaches
                hiding
from the light of reason.

The poison of hate
squanders lifetimes,
ravages the mind--
worse when cemented
by self-righteousness.

Hatred is active
ignorance
that wreaks
violence
upon the soul.
Humanity is devalued
when hatred
sours rationality.
