Hate Crime

Who …

Who put this hard shard of flint in there

where flesh and blood should beat the drum of a soul

Who did this …

Who blinded those eyes from the fear in the faces

of those facing you

Who did this thing …

Who deafened those ears so they could no longer

comprehend compassion or hear conscience

Who did this thing

This terrible thing

Who hardened the hands that held the steel

Who stole the happiness from a young life

Who twisted the words of prophets and poets

into a string of rants and self-righteous retribution

Who tied your fate with faith

so that none could escape its madness

Who did this thing

This terrible thing

This synthetic thing

This pathetic thing

Created

not by the divine

but

by your hatred of yourself
