You Will Become

Do you want to know Who you will become?
You will become the person 
you hated most as a young person.
Face it.
Accept it.
Admit it.

If you hated greedy pigs.
One day you too will end up
living in your own mud  pond
by your own desire for more

If you hated cry babies 
you will end up whining 
more than anyone you ever met.
If you hated abusers
Good chance 
you too will become an abuser.

If you hated your mother or father 
you will become them.

If you hated traitors
You will end up 
committing treason.
If you hated law and order
And thought 
you were the most rebellious -
You will end up 
working for the law.
dedicating your life 
to crushing rebellious souls
Like you so loved to be.

If you hated 
people who don't fight enough 
to keep their marriage alive
You will end up divorced.
Or just a regular betrayer
of the marriage oath.

If you hated with a vengeance 
a certain 
religion or race or skin color -
You will probably marry them
Or at least sleep with them-
Hating your own hypocritical soul
and uncontrollable attractions
to that which you hated in vain.

If you hated fat people
You will end up fat.
If you hated people 
who aren't straight
You too will end up 
much less straight than a ruler.

The most important thing is
Don't hate yourself.
It's not your fault 
you turned into 
that which you have always despised.
That's just how all humans roll.
We dread what we will become
so we start hating it early on
Hoping our feelings 
will change our destiny
Which we know we can't change.
