Hatred

I was hearing a Beatles song a while back-“Give peace a chance.”It’s a very well meaning song no doubt but somehow it irked me.Don’t get me wrong-I love the Beatles-I totally do.But I disagreed with their song-give peace a chance-Goddamn it!!!Peace has been given a lot of chances already-look at our country-we were peaceful people and were plundered over the ages by the Pathans,the Moghuls,the British etc.Peace never works.Peace only works in Utopia.It’s war out there-always has been,always will be.

Fighting-I hear people saying this-“Fighting never solves anything”-Do these people really believe that?We have been fighting since the dawn of civilization.Fighting for our existence.We fight daily-for our lives,for our jobs,for our love.Fighting is a natural part of us.See whenever there is a street fight people gather round to watch.It's a primal instinct-why not embrace it?If we don’t keep at it we will obliterated.Because even if you don’t fight for your rights-no one will give it to you.You have to play by their rules-beat them at their game.

All these hypocrites nowadays-They slam rock and rap music-for being too violent,for spreading hatred,for profanities they say.They-whoever they are-claim that these are harmful for kids-that it influence children in a negative way-Influence in a negative way?Why because they teach them the truth about life?Because most of these rock and rap musicians had to fight their way up from the gutters-fight for every inch-they know what it is.Committing a crime is ultimately up to the offender.It’s got nothing to do with influence.Thousands of people listen to this kind of music-but what they make of it is completely up to them.Some people misunderstand the message in the songs.And anyday I will take this over your pop shit-which has songs mostly about love,heartbreak and blah blah blah-because life doesn’t begin or end with amour-Life is a continuous struggle for existence.

I hear this phrase quite a lot-“love conquers all”-Like hell it does!!The phrase “falling in love” has deeper meaning.Love gives you this sinking feeling.Love gives you weakness.Love opens that door behind which lurks of having your faith broken,your love betrayed.Hatred on the other hand depends on no one.Hatred acts on it’s own.Hatred fuels the vengeance.Hatred makes people do things they didn’t know they were capable of.And am not talking about the negative things-think of the positives-With hatred comes a furious urge to prove yourself-and that is a motivation love can never give you.

All I am saying is give hatred a chance-Hatred when channelled in the right direction can lead you unto great things-USE THE RAGE!!!

I'm not sure I agree with the post. At the end of WW 2 Japan renounced their right to declare war against any country-it's a part of their constitution. They'd only mobilize their army on account of self-defense.
I think after the bombings at Pearl Harbor n the US retaliating with the atomic bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki they realized their flaw in thinking.
Wars, violence, hatred lead to nowhere.

@samadrita-You misunderstood..I wasn't talking about wars-I was talking about hatred and fighting in day to day lives-I don't support war,terrorism etc...

I totally agree with the channeling the hatred part...there was a tym in my lyf when i wnted to prove something to someone i hated...and that helped me to strive more..dat fueled me..any emotion when properly channeled and represented can work wonders.

First of all an excellent piece of writing......next i totally agree with your post....the message you try to convey through this post is quite similar to that of "A Clockwork Orange"....if not fully.....but to a certain extent...

I am not sure whether Lennon could have written those lines sitting in the present world, where the so called 'peace-makers' are the biggest frauds, making 'peace' superficially, while beneath all that, they only tempt more misunderstandings, that lead to violence.

P.S- It is not a Beatles song, but a John Lennon solo!!!!!
