Bent on Destruction


sculpture-421548_640I have often wondered how it is that some people become so damaged that they cannot get out of their own way and become better people.  They insist on trying to destroy every bit of love, peace and beauty that may exist in this world.

Often times, these people are exceptionally bright.  I have to wonder what the world could be like if this intelligence were channeled for good instead of for evil.

The stories run the test of time.  They are not new, nor will they cease to exist in new generations. It happens in government, business, and in personal relationships.

It is simply a shame that it has to be so.

Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them. ~Johannes Brahms
