Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.

Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love
or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.
I hope you're getting this down.

and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy
in the midst of your challenges.
