i am…

i am pain and i am sorrow
i’m the curse that should not be
the cost of doing business
in the land of the unfree
i’m hate and spite and bigotry
the words one should not speak
the spirit of malignity
tormentor of the weak
i’m everything you should despise
but no matter what you do
you’ll never be quite rid of me
for i’m alive in you

    I believe, if we ever chose your top 5 best poems, this would be #1. Excellent flow, great ending, made the hair on my neck stand up. Lots of applause for this one!
