"there are no friends or enemies in this life; just selfish desires based on instincts and self lustings."

oh joyous hate!
oh blood stained glory!
why do you show yourself?
do you enjoy taking the lives of others-
spilling blood onto the ground,
and hands of others?
why does everyone fight the wars of others?
is it because of you, hate?
is it because of you, glory?
you fill others with feelings of destruction.
you encourge others to go forth with the destruction.
glory and hate-
meeting only with the death of others.
is this a coincedence?
i think not.
it is you who cause the killing;
the spilling of blood;
the madness of murder and war.
in society killing is murder-
indegenous hate,
but on the battlefield,
killing is glory-
hate's best friend.oh blood stained hate!
oh joyous glory!
please don't take anymore lives.

Most people don't know how they're gonna feel from one moment to the next, but a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. They just look at the labels on the little bottles.

Oh wow. I really love this. The subject is so strong and the ideas are clever. This poem is a wonderful break from the teen relationship poetry that I too am guilty of. A really powerful one here.
