OBSIDIAN ISSUE #1: PUSHED
We tend to build a stigma to those who have done the gravest things solely for their sake of living. Kahit sa anong antas ng kabutihan, nahuhusgahan sa nag-iisang pagkakamali. Mabuti pa rin bang maitatawag kung maganda ang isang hangarin ngunit galing sa labag na gawain?
Sa sukdulang mga posibilidad sa mundo, ano ang maaaring magtulak sa atin pabalik sa katuwiran? Are good morals enough to shove us back to righteousness? Sure, the conscience is omnipresent yet the worst part, it never leaves when you know that there is no way out.
Pangangailangan na mismo ang nagtulak kay Aleah na kumagat sa patalim. Lahat ay kayang tiisin. As the proverbial saying goes, 'The end should justify the means'. Truth it is, even in the most evil of ways, a good outcome would always excuse it.
But in between morality and need, affection sat comfortable in the middle seat. It is not beyond the bounds of possibility that what we deem as a mistake turns out to be someone's disguised blessing; A man who had been through his own chaos of pain. Ang tulak ng damdamin ay sadyang mahirap sugpuin. Ito ay alam ni Aleah. So could an intense feeling beat the morals to finally push her to justice?
Or it could be that in one way or another, she'd find herself getting pushed into the coldest depth of his heart.
