Is a man born Evil?
Or does he grow up that way?
Growing and growing until there is only cruel ice left
Is he born without innocence?
Or is it taken away from him?
Taking and taking until there is no more left
Is he born a murderer?
Or does the world shape him that way?
Molding and molding until the outcome is too horrendous to even look at
Is he born without a heart?
Or does Reality take it away from his innocent clutches?
Stealing and Stealing until it is too far away
Can a man truly be Evil?
Or is he merely dressed in Evil’s skins to protect
his weary soul
hiding behind a wall
shaped like a mask
