Every time I read comics or stories, I have a recurring sentiment for the antagonists; it is pity.
Because just like this life, these stories, shows that villians have a purpose, even though they know they will lose. Driven by despair, fear and hatred, antoganists fight for their purpose. Although they do win sometimes, their victories are always short lived.
How foolish but ironically commendable, to know what you gain is temporary and fragile but still yearn and work for it so much.
Before God casted Iblis away from Heaven, Iblis seeked a pact from God. “Before you cast me into hell, cast me into the world and let me live there with immortality. I will set most of your creations astray. Then, you can send me to hell.
Iblis, like all villians, knew the Truth. Knew that good, will ultimately prevail. But their disappointment, despair, greed and jealousy got the best of them. Driven with a purpose, even though bad, they strive here on Earth.
What I’m trying to say is, learn to let go of your hatred and despair.
What I’m trying to say is, don’t hate the devil, pity it.
What I’m trying to say is, how foolish are us, to follow the footsteps of a loser, just for temporary and fragile pleasure that we both know, won’t last.
What I’m trying to say is, if villains can strive even while knowing their victory is fleeting, why can’t we, who claim to strive for goodness, feel helpless? -Excerpt from ‘There’s something I want to tell you’. - 1 hour ago
