They Will Hate You

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But when you have withdrawn your light from their dark cave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
