I hate that

I hate that America is so flawed.
I hate that so many of us are killed by guns.
I hate that so many of us are in prison.
I hate that drugs steal the future from young people.
I hate that work doesn’t pay a living wage.
I hate that we fill the sky with poison for profit.
I hate that an education is about nothing but passing a test.
I hate that change and progress is such a difficult battle.

  1. I hate that my hands bleed when I bump against something, I hate that my knees ache when I sit or stand. I like to think that I am aging gracefully,but the truth is that it is painful. My back hurts, my feet ache, it hurts to see creases that weren’t there a day ago and wattles on my neck which now hangs lower than my boobs.

  4. I hate the fact that even though leaders know they are doing us wrong, they still keep doing in the name of the almighty dollar. I hate the fact that people are so trusting of people in power and look for a change that will never come. I hate the fact that I have watch children become corrupted and polluted by the minds and evils of adults. I hate the fact that I could probably go on about the things I hate for a very long time.
