Description: Weirdly, I got halfway through writing this before realising I pretty much took the whole idea and rhyming scheme from the movie "10 things I hate about you"
So even if you hate this you must now go rent that movie. it's really great.
I hate you -------------------------------------------
I hate the way you need to be wanted by others
That you know you're best alone but hurt deep inside
You never know just what to say when talking to strangers
Living so far out the box you could be deaf, dumb and blind
I hate the way you run, how you hide from your own future
I hate the way you cry when your feelings explode
I hate the way that you can't face yourself in the mirror
The way your face goes red when frustration takes hold
I hate the way you hate to be the you you were before
the way you shut off your emotions, when you lock them inside
You cut off all your ties you try to live with no back history
I hate both you and all those bridges burned and left behind
I hate the way you love to dance but never will in public
The way you love to sing, when you're drunk or alone
I hate your fear of failure and the way that you prevent it
When you've given up on everything that you've ever done
I hate that you never forget the hurtful things that happened
Still hanging on mistakes from several decades ago
When you do nothing for yourself yet work your arse off for others
It's so frustrating that you live without dreams, without hope
I hate these things and more, I hate the fact that you live
Wasting up the oxygen each time you take a breath
I hate everything you hear, hate everything you see
But I hate you most of all for the fact that you are me
Well, the reason movies are popular and make money is because people can totally relate to them. We are always way less forgiving of ourselves than we are of other people. Why is it that the mistakes that others make we can ignore, but if they are our own, we can totally loathe them. Reading this, someone might think the person has low self-esteem, and that may be true at that moment, but I think most people, women for sure, have characteristics and habits that they hate, yet just can't seem to change them and so hate that quality, too.
BTW- I love the movie and may have to pull it up to watch again tonight after reading this.
