Growing Up

As I gain more and more experience,
I become more and more aware of the evil in the world.
I used to think that every person wanted to be good.
The older I get the more I realize that we all have the ability to do evil.
Not only the ability, but we all have the desire.

Even more startling to me is my own lack of justice.
My own evil.
I was not aware of its existence when I was younger.
But the evil is inside of me and it lashes out tenaciously at times.
I try to suppress it, but I can no longer deny its presence.
