Understood
This will read as a plea
To vindicate intolerance as surely as it is written

Understand
Contempt born of clear perception
Is a birthright to those who channel it toward progression

Preserve life without loathing
Awaken hope within hatred
Wrest insight from outrage

This is a birthright and obligation

Spiteful and ill-tempered, I know the character well
A maelstrom of weakness, and instability seething with viciousness
I choose not to accept this
Not into my life
There is no hope of reform
When pride is allied with hostility, all reason is denied
I return the denial

A glaring misconception of self-importance, I know the character well
Heedless fool, so arrogant with no understanding of consequence
I see this negligence
I choose not to accept it
Not into my life
Absence of introspection neglects the outer world
Let not the excess of lusts and comfort mislead you
This world is not yours

Feel the quarrel in just his presence, you know the character all too well
A destructive man at war with his cowardice
I detest belligerence, and choose not to accept it
Not into my life
Keep separate these hatreds
Undefined animosity is a device of the spineless, the means of a fool
Focused misanthropy is opposition for these dark hearts-
Downpours of disapproval no words could begin to express

To distort the truth to serve itself
To oppose understanding
I believe in man
Man will maintain its hostility
Have this faith

Conflict in the chest
To be concerned for the needs of such heartless men
