Being very sick, bordering that abyss edge doesn't all ways come with "all your life passing in front of your eyes" but suddenly remembering the life teachers that only could taught you about hate...


Taught by an abusive father, the one preying on his children.
Learned from a violent woman that shouldnít had been a mother.
Inculcated by the Imams in the name of an all merciful God.
Soul eating malign worm; bad love will metamorphose in another.

It is true that we are taught to hate. This has me wondering though... would there be any love if there was no hate? Dichotomies...
Thought provoking lines.

Thanks be that the power of love in your life overcame all the hatred you were shown as a child, Georg. You show us all that power of Love, and we reciprocate to you!!
Blessings and LOVE - Micke

I believe hate is taught and it's our choice to change things. The best people usually have had the toughest lives because they can get through anything...What doesn't kill us will only make us stronger on the inside and outside. Your a beautiful soul that has seen hate and risen above to share your love with us all. Your friend, ~Chessly

Seems you learned to turn hate into love, Georg; truly a fine accomplishment. Love and peace to you,

We are suppose to receive the knowledge of love from our parents, those who see and receive hate can only hate in return and pray that one day they let love into their hearts. Great write Georg.

Georg, my friend, Hate is something learned through living with negatively charged people...It is the flip side of love, can be just as passionate...So I believe that hate can be just as deeply felt as love, but the soul chooses the positive and love will always win out for me anyway..

Much peace, love and light,

An abusive father or mother
can' only teach hate
a man that abuses wife
shows his children that its OK to hate and abuse
No one should have to learn to hate or feel
Such Pain,Brilliant write!
and very sad!
Wishing you Peace Love an Light..for a quick recovery..Yolie

All those may breed and teach hatred but then Georg old buddy you have so many friends like the ones you have here on AD who teach us that love can be just as powerful and we must decide who is the best teacher.

You've written a strong message Georg. Parents often times don't realize the infuluence they have over who and what their children will become. When there is inept parenting it is society who pays. Two magic words would absolve the world of all its problems. Those two words are, Be Kind.
Hope you're feeling better.

Hate needs allot of energy to sustain itself I think
no matter were the vermin comes from
I think the closest I have myself come to hate would be
despise & anger for another trespassing me
and those are really depleting in their self for
the duration of its short lived moment...
so I cannot really fathom anyone carrying such luggage as hate
it must have been a very miserable father this person
since hate does not grow from goodness or inner peace
and in your words I take with me blessings
for never having to know such a durational person
May Love Always Fill Your Soul Georg
