They Will Hate You

19 Nov

They Will Hate You

I make no promises
Other than this one
To everyone who follows
The warrior’s long run:

They will hate you

If you choose to be honest
And stand up for what’s right
You will draw all their anger
Their selfishness and spite

They will hate you

If you won’t sacrifice
Your own integrity
Just to make them happy
This I will guarantee:

They will hate you

If you won’t fire back
With anger, loathing, hate
If you will not reflect
The scorn that they create

They will hate you

If you make them all feel
Inferior because
You refuse to act
The way a hater does

They will hate you

If you show grace, control
And aren’t as sensitive
As the one that hates
And unlike them, forgive

They will hate you

But when you have withdrawn
Your light from their dark cave
And left them all alone
To their malice, a slave

To only be surrounded
By others just as dark
And wallowing in grief
Without even a spark

When posturing and ego
No longer come in play
And they are all alone
This truth will haunt their day:

They will miss you

    Perfectly said!

    That’s absolutely true—and that happens everyday!
    People will hate you the moment they realize they cannot be like you.

    May I ask permission to reblog it?

    Thanks!

    I read it on Mystery’s site. I wrote there, that words on the picture, and your poem too, it’s like my own philosophy. I just couldn’t write about it so well as you did:)

    Thanks for visiting my AncientEarthWisdom.com blog. Beautiful poem! This is my favorite stanza from your poem:

    ***
    If you won’t sacrifice
    Your own integrity
    Just to make them happy
    This I will guarantee:

    They will hate you

    Recently had this recalled to my attention, at Sojourner’s. Always true, but so timely, now, after recently being torched a bit.
    Truth never dies.
    Hate manages to burn itself out in the end.

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
