The Element Of Hate

How can I call you
my next of kin
if I’m the element
of hate
?

I was the root, the seed,
the germ of an envy.
My presence was terrible
than troubles.

How can a child
blamed for something
bad that he did not
commit?

I was the element of hate,
the root, the seed, the germ
of one jealousy that triggered
a big home.
