I want to talk today
About judgment and hate
But my words come out
Unrelated and lame
Deflated, outdated, jaded
I want to talk about
Creating a day
Where we can forget
Hatred, discrimination and blame
But I realize today, that I cannot preach
Of issues like this I am not worthy to teach
Hypocrisy sullies my world-weary reach
Since I too am a hater; my words have been breached.
I’m a hater of teens with their tits hanging out
Worried my own girl will take this same route
I’m hating on Photoshop and all of its tricks
Altering bods for just a quick fix
I hate the debates of vaccinations and kids
Stressed from the sickness
That once we had rid
I find hatred in media
Hatin’ on fakes
Teaching my kids
To be flakes.
I’m hatin’ on Miley and of course on the Biebs
Believing that they just need to all leave.
And suddenly I realize how much that I hate
And I think about all the time that it wastes.
I look at my babes, and their innocent faces
And all too soon my thought process replaces
Realizing hate is forlorn and pointless
Only causing condemned disappointment
So I’m thinking the way to stop all this hate
Is by starting with me, changing my fate.
I look at the girls plastered on Facebook, Twitter and Plus
And instead of laughing and calling them sluts
I wonder why they show off all their stuff
I want to talk to the strangers I share this world with
And tell them their beautiful without Instagram tricks
And as for the media, I’ll say that it’s fine
Because issues like this will never resign
But knowing full well I don’t have to oblige.
Because hatin on others causes that riff
In which we have tried to so hard to dismiss
I quit, omit
From all the bullshit,
Will get us nowhere quick.
And maybe if I can show love before hate
My children will take after this trait
And life will get better
Whilst joy generates.
Because whether we like, or whether we don’t
Hatred will ALWAYS cast the first stone.
And eventually we will be left all alone
With only our despicable revulsion to show
So I will begin practicing day after day
To obliterate ill will
In my own world today.
Because the ending of hatred,
Begins here with me
Not needing it to be fully at peace
And then I will teach my kids to receive
Life without hatred and life without greed
And oh how beautiful it will feel to be freed
And know that this harmony simply started with me.
