The hardest thing in life is to hate The smell of revenge that kills the life every day So who are you that seek for my death? When the easiest thing to do is walk away And save self, upon the linger of hate there is love waiting at the gate. So whom shall I hurt if I kill you? My family and those who live to see the accomplishments of my dreams Living behind a 8/11 cage Ego and pride that will take me to hell My children without a mother, my freedom no longer My God that will turn a deaf ear to my prayers. So who do I blame if I let you back in Am I victim are asking to destroy self. When I take a life, do I give up mind? And my children life shall end; in the death of my own hand. There are laws to protect self from the devil that live Upon my turf, shall I suffer in silences are shall I protect self; intimidation that satin sets before my door.
