The Power Behind Hatred

a deep undercurrent
a reminder
of the scars left
from the demons
that tainted us
that nearly destroyed us
a recurrent feeling
sometimes successfully suppressed
other times
not so much
instead of suppression
we tend to force
the hatred brewing
inside us all
on those closest
those undeserving
of the malice
we desperately needed to inflict
forever scarring them
and in that sense
we become the same demons
that forced us into shells
of our former selves
