Taught to Hate

Teacher's Note: This is response to a writing and thinking prompt, "Do we have to be taught to hate, or do we come by it naturally?"

Sometimes we were taught how to hate but sometimes we do not, it comes naturally.

No one taught me how to hate
no one taught me how to love
I taught myself how to love and hate
no one told me hate was bad and love was good
I had to find out myself

hate, hate, hate, it comes in so many ways
it comes in different colors different languages
you never know when it is going to get you
but it will get you sooner or later
