I’m Sorry I Hate You.

I’m sorry I hate you.

I hate you ‘cos you made me this way…
I hate you cos you stole my joy and left a bleeding soul.
I hate you ‘cos you never cared to mould me.
I hate you ‘cos I don’t know how to love you.

I sought your love, and hell was there to find.
I became your clown in your favourite circus
Your symbol made to amuse; a buffoon.
A shadow of a person so familiar to you.

Never would I be like your first; your pride.
I would always be a reason to chide.
Most nights I cried and dried
And at day, laughter became a farther stranger.

I’m sorry I was a disappointment
I’m sorry I let you break me
I’m sorry that my blood wasn’t enough to show you
I’m sorry I remind you of yourself.

I’m sorry I hate you, Dad.

I hate you ‘cos you stripped me off my core.
Always making me doubt my existence through you.
I hate you ‘cos I know how to.
But painfully, I hate you ‘cos I want to love you.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, @danjuma I believe it’s a hatred built around the lack of love! Around a boy who could never be enough in the eyes of his father.

  2. @roy-journals, i got the message. there is a very thin line between love and hate. That’s why we have the capacity to fiercely hate those that we fiercely love when we have a falling out. This is because the people that have the most capacity to hurt you are those that you love most. The last line tied it all up

      Thanks very much @folakemi You got the message clearly. I always appreciate your comments on my posts. Thanks a lot.

  3. What irony. Love the rythm of the poem.The rhymes well arranged. Loved the suspence cos I was wondering who you were hating untill I realized it was ur dad. I hope this is just fiction?If not then please find a way to mend the fence with him. God bless you.

      Lol! @olarinoye54 I don’t think he hates his father, I think he craves his father’s love so much that hating him feels like the only thing to do. Thanks so much for liking it enough to comment.
