You cannot run away from a weakness; you must sometimes fight it out or perish. And if that be so, why not now, and where you stand? — Robert Louis Stevenson

This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us?
Did it steal into our lives, or did we seek it out and embrace it?
What happened to us?
That we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war…
Hoping for their safe return…
But knowing that some will be lost along the way.
When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows, swallowed whole by the darkness.
Does this darkness have a name?
Is it your name?

i don’t know why.. but when i read this.. i just had to post it..

    This Darkness is called you, before you try to face the bitterness of the world that surrounds you fight the demons within for we all are not without sin and those who fight and decide not to win unleash the beast and become a menace a wrath of fathomable force of course but rejoice in the fact that instead of killing your inner demon you decided to dance in perfect harmony THE IRONY!!!
