SO MUCH PAIN

 

“Love, like most things in life, has its light and its dark side.
It is seldom a straightforward simple undertaking.
This paradoxical two-sidedness is a fundamental aspect,
an observable premise in all that exists in the universe.
Think of matter and energy. Good and evil. To be or not to be.
Misunderstanding this basic concept is what it means to be human…”
