In everything, there is a beginning and an end.
Even great mountains rise and fall as time continues to roll on.
Within that time, a delicate balance must be maintained
or all will fall into chaos and ruin.
The universe is no different.
Among the chaos of creation there is still a semblance of balance,
or nothing would be able to form, to grow, to endure.
But what keeps that balance?
Is it divine force, or just chance?
Is it strong and sure,
or just holding on by a thread that is ready to break at any moment?
Do we have centuries, years,
or days before the life we know ends as suddenly as it began?
Is it as simply as a choice between good or evil, right or wrong, love or hate.
Or is it as simple as choosing it embrace both,
because without one the other does not exist.
