# 2 - Thesis. Antithesis. Synthesis.

I see the hero deep in all of us,
I see the valiant warrior confined,
I see the wise and penetrating mind,
I see compassion, sympathy and trust.
I also see the hope that turns to dust,
the jealousy and fear that make us blind,
the bitter, broken face of humankind,
the angry, frightened, sad and envious.
It's tempting then to ask: 'Which will prevail?
The night or light? The chaos or the calm?'
But that struggle is what helps to mould us all ‒
a lesson learned for every time we fail,
and for every time the darkness threatens harm,
a small, swift flame to shield against the fall.
