Heroes and Villains
By Ashley O’Hare
Heroes and villains—
It is a nice concept;
except it is not true.
One cannot definitively say
grey is black or white.
Fights can only start with two sides.
Pride is not always an evil trait.
Ballistics confirm that violence solves nothing.
Something as complex as human identity,
mentality, and rationality requires care and time.
Crimes have several layers to feel back.
Lack of subjective thought is necessary—
Clarity does not come readily.
