Good and evil.
Black and white.
Light and darkness.
These are what many consider key elements in the creation of morality. But, what most fail to realize, is that such terms, in nature, are highly subjective and completely up for interpretation. These are ideals, created by man, to serve as protection for what they think is unsafe.
These lines are blurred, severely so. The most valiant of heroes can have a heart as black as night. The most despicable of villains can be a truly good-willed man. Granted, there are many instances where the definitions we have come to accept have been made apparent, but these are far and few in between.
People have believed that the light is good, and the dark is evil. But the darkness is undeserving of these unjustified assumptions and petty wiles. They are their own world, cast away by the zealous rays of light that strive to wipe them from existence. They are the shadows that we see each day. As much of people as you and I, but unable to communicate with us. Not because they cannot speak, but because we refuse to listen.
Light and shadows, benevolence and malevolence, black and white, they have no meaning. When man gives something a definition, they strip it away of most of the potential it could have, and exposes it to near endless streams of prejudice and bile.
Embrace the darkness.
Cast away what you thought was real, and begin anew.
