Those who love you

Those who love you

often don’t let you know;

you may discover their love

in their whispers, looks or gestures.

But it is those who hate you

that shout hostility at you loud and clear.

When you feel like the entire world

is against you

and life is cruel,

hard, and so unbearable,

it is not true

that nobody loves you:

Those who love you

usually never use more than whispers

but those who hate you

hate themselves even more.

Interested in some of my published works?
