The good and evil we believe
Are absolute opposing traits,
Are both within humanity
But in completely fluid states.
They're ends of a continuum.
Our evil blends with good between.
The closer to the good we are
The less of evil will be seen.
As we approach the evil end
Much more of it is evident.
Meanwhile more good will disappear;
And any blend we can present.
They're from reactions to the void,
The generators of our blend.
The one we have is from the range
Defined by those at either end.
With "the ideal" we reach out to
The bounds of our capacity,
To others and to God as well.
This generates the good we see.
Attempts to fill the void within
With eight ways which we reinvent,
Create the evil that we see
Which we've been taught the devil sent.
Our good brings life, our evil death;
And some of each is in our lives.
Replacing evil with our good,
May mean humanity survives.
