It’s in all of us.
A retrovirus, we are all infected by it. It lingers, festers, blossoms. No angel is immune.
I hate it. I HATE IT!
Cruelty is learned, passed on from generation to generation. Some imprint it into the bones of their offspring, others pour poison into their ears, and tattoo it into their souls. A single encounter taints for eternity.
And yet, unescapable.
There seems to be, no complete or global cure.
