Here are the characters:

a GIRL hiking across the country

(a rescue mission; the price to pay: your innocence)

a BOY hoping to please his father

(doomed endeavor; you won’t get out alive)

a MAN who needs his family

(stopped fighting, stopped living; you need redemption)

a WOMAN who makes bombs

(in your heart, a child is crying; you can never comfort him)

Here are the villains:

a FATHER who’s forgotten his humanity

(look at you, loving your son too late)

a BROTHER who forgot the limits

(you stopped lying to yourself about the blood you’ve shed)

a MOTHER unknown of those she loves

(they look at you, and you ask, why do they see a monster?)

Here are the forgotten:

a BOY who loved too much
(your sister will come for you, but you will be too stubborn to listen)

a WIFE who couldn’t bear to lose his children
(you got a glimpse of your lost ones, and, finally, her love; perhaps that was enough)

Here’s what the past doesn’t say:

There are those who did wrong, and those who did as best they could
but the FUTURE will not tell if they succeeded.

Here’s how the story ends:

not in fireworks, or bloodshed,
no tears and no laughter,
no holy grace and no hellfire.

It ENDS as all stories do,
in a deafening silence

get to know me meme: [1/10] relationships: Charlie & Monroe (Revolution)
“Monroe’s deluded. I don’t care how many men he’s got, he’s not getting the Republic back. None of us are gonna be alive that long anyway. But until then, we stay standing, we keep fighting, and we do whatever it takes to win. I didn’t go for Monroe. I went for myself.”
