Love, Madness, Poetry: It's Always Darkest Before the Dawn

Dawn: a beautiful reminder that each day, you could start anew.

     It was a dark night, and everyone was trying to sleep. But something came up:  an unexpected visit, an unwelcomed guest, and an unbelievable lie.

    I could distinctly remember how we all felt then: scared and angry and brave, all at the same time.  
 
    It is a sad reality, a depressing truth: that some people will go out of their ways, go the extra mile, even, for power, for money, for ego. Evil is all around us.

    But you know, I can't help but think: isn't it divine? That just when you're about to give up because everything is hopeless and the world tells you that you cannot do anything about it,  you are reminded of one thing: that you have a choice; that you always have a choice. 

  That you don't have to lose this battle.

  That you get a chance to do something different,
make a change, set things right, and start anew,

  every morning,
  every day.

   Earlier today, a notification flashed on my phone screen. It was a timely quote sent by my sorority sister, Meriel.
       It read: 

  "The only thing required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"
-- Edmund Burke
