Confession of a Being
I am evil.
And good is learned through restraining our own.
When I was a child, I didn't know my actions could count as bad.
Until my conscience was built towards good. Until I was acquainted towards the difference of good and evil.
We have a values education subject during elementary, and I learned to be a hypocrite just to have a high score during a quiz and exam.
If morality didn't exist, then we wouldn't be able to categorize ourselves in good and evil.
If there wasn't "evil" to begin with, then we wouldn't be able to acknowledge the "good".
We build ourselves through restraint.
We learn to hide our dark deep desires just to be viewed as a person with moral, with respect in regards to others.
We just learn that being evil can be a hindrance to others.
Maybe that's why such law exist just to have a well functioning society.
In a lawless world, evil is predominant in such place.
Sometimes I couldn't help but agree with de Sade, "In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice."
But at the end of the day,
It was our choice to be either good or evil.
It was our own choice to be evil today and be a good person tomorrow.
However my confession is still the same.
I am evil.
I just learned to hide beneath my veil.
Humans are not humans without the existence of both good and evil.
