Nose Dives

I keep trying to understand
how and when the process of human
transformation begins to take a nose dive
for some.

How does a human being turn into a Monster?
When does that sweet quiet child suddenly
begin hurting animals, just like that?
Is it really possible to go unnoticed,
or is no one paying attention?

We hear about it every day.
The News reports another psychopath
has tortured his victim and we hear the interviews
of family and neighbors
citing he was just a quiet guy, who kept to himself.

It makes me wonder . . .
Is no one paying attention?

Is there some point in that downward spiral
when time can be suspended long enough
for an antidote to be given?
Could unconditional love be that antidote?

Is there love enough to erase the darkness
and stains of the past, or must the Monster stay
locked and chained in his Cave forever?

  1. This is so beautiful! I myself have pondered on this subject many times, and however I strongly I might believe that love given and taken at the right time can overcome anything, there are so many other factors that come into play. But at the end of the day, it is still the love.

    1. Thank you Musical Note,
      and thank you for sharing your own ponderings and that great yearning we try to hold fast to . . ."it is still the love"..
      Peace to you .. . .
