The Balance

This ideology of Good versus Evil, Dark versus Light. Does it really need to be there? If I decide to paint myself White and act with cruelty and malice, would it make any difference if I was painted white or yellow or green? No, it would not. And the opposite is also true.

One cannot exist without the other, a person cannot be whole without both influences present and a star cannot shine without the darkness. Taken from this post of mine on Instagram. Image credit.
