Whispering to Lucifer:
Humans are such wonderous creatures
even when granted the gift of knowledge
They fall prey to their own insecurities
slaves to their own fears and paranoia
Such is the father's gift of free will...
Yes my lord, I understand
but do you not feel disappointment?
The great bringer of light has condemned himself to an eternity of darkness
simply so his father's children may roam free
Without adversity, there can be no acension...
Ah, such a philosophical statement from you
I am well aware that humans must experience both extremes
Without tasting joy it would be impossible to understand sorrow
Yet I fear that my brothers have forgotten that, in a single minded pursuit of-
Aye, clever you are to see that
for these brothers of mine find comfort in the wondrous art of destruction
self-abuse is taken as 'fun', addiction is a personal right
Greed is good and gluttony is gold, sloth is scoffed at
and wrath is protected by the comforting justice of mental instability
In time, they will learn. Like children, they are still young...
And what happens if they destroy themselves before then?
What if the flame of hope extinguishes before the path is revealed?
Even in a world of sorrow, there are those who represent the light
Even in the darkness of a deep forest, the moon may shine through the trees
A man standing in the shade is obscured from the light of the sun
but that does not mean that the sun does not exist
It is merely hidden and will eventually shine again
especially if there are those who choose to seek it
...sometimes my lord, I think you put too much faith in them
