Do you believe in fate? I don’t mean justice. I mean retribution. Facing the consequences of your actions that have produced catastrophe. A sin that is everlasting, one that you have made immortal. There is a line from Shelley that haunts me, a single line from Adonais. I cannot get it out of my head. ‘No more let life divide, what death can join together.
There is no light without darkness, no courage without fear, no pleasure without pain, no salvation without sin, no life without death, no kindness without cruelty. The devil is in all of us, that’s what makes us humans.
