The Shadow of a Doubt

– The Shadow of a Doubt

You must hate them. 

No I do not
For what was done? 

Do you not feel ? 
Yes I do. But we empathize.

We do not hate. 
You see, I do not hate the person and persons.

I hate what they did. 

The deed that they did and in the manner they did it.

But I do not hate them, the person.

They chose to be ignorant because knowing would plant the seed of conscience.
They chose to not understand because understanding would mean that their egos would have to succumb to the reality of consequence, and that is a shadow that will follow them….
Forever .
