You, my regret and my joy
I am sorry you partook in my pain
An unwitting recipient you were
Of my mess, my angst, the weakness that was me
Now that I have got me made right
You will partake in my strength
The grace I have come to know, really know
I will love you with all my heart
Take a break when it gets too much
But I will always bounce back
I will always be here
Because I can love you
Now that I love me, too.
Hate is the absence–not the opposite–of love. Those who know love can never hate, just like how having light exempts us from darkness.
