The Hope of Despair

Can you not see it?
That which condemns us to this life of brutality?
Evil lies within the dregs of society.
Can you not feel it?
That which ties us to this life of discord and enmity?
Evil hides within the roots of the soul.
Can you not taste it?
That which lusts for the blood of others?
Evil lurks within the shadows of the mind.
Can you not hear it?
That which glories in the cries of the dying souls?
Evil clings to hate and greed.

I can see the evil.
I can feel the evil.
I can taste the evil.
I can hear the evil.

Yet, within humanity's fetid fruit, exists a viable seed of hope.
