It is true.
Inside every human being,
There is a tremendous and powerful capacity to commit deeds of evil.
A force with the power to hurt others,
To further ourselves by stepping on the dreams of those around us.
Inside everyone is this darkness,
And nobody is completely free from it.
But inside us all, there is also light.
And it is the darkness which allows the light to be seen.
Without the capacity for darkness,
We would not have the capacity for light.
Now, there are times in all our lives,
When the darkness overpowers the light.
Times where we forget,
When all hope seems lost,
And we cannot break free from the darkness
As it encloses and imprisons us.
It is in times such as this,
That we must look to others.
In times when our own strength and will becomes insufficient,
And we feel ourselves drowning
In the despair and pain and misery
That the darkness brings with it,
We must stand by each other.
For when the light of one person
Is not enough to drive the darkness away,
We must grow our numbers.
We must support our fellows,
And share our light.
For only then can we be strong enough to be free.
And when we are free,
And strengthened by the people
Who support us,
It is only then
That we are strong enough to fulfill our own dreams.
This is the strength which man can gain from weakness.
