To hate is linked to fear we can’t endure

To hate is linked to overwhelming fear
We fear intrusion and the sharing too.
Fear of closeness creates a black  veneer

 

Those we love ,we might  too well admire
That throws us into envy and the blues
To hate is linked to overwhelming fear

We wish to be the  better and aspire
To win the  prize, to wield no more the plough
Fear of closeness creates a false  veneer

Yet were we more at ease and more secure
We’d have kind interest in how our rivals do
To hate is linked to overwhelming fear

The end of envy, malice so desired
Brings all down, destroys the world anew
Fear of closeness creates a false  veneer

Hate is sad unless we’ve love  in view
A rhythm of  real connection  should be glue
To hate is linked to fear we can’t endure
Our poor heart hides beneath a thick  veneer
