Faith was sick and tired of living a lie; or to what feels like a constant delusion.
She tried to be this good person but in her mind when she gets angry, she was more like a vigilante in the movies. Really, she was not afraid of people and felt an irresistible urge to fight back. It was almost like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. She was not the person inside that she pretended to be outside.
Faith had a tough outlook on how people were and she was tired of dealing with their evil and selfish ways. How would she combat this demon that drove her and wished to burst free from the cage she built for it?
Would it turn and bite her and anyone else that got closer? This was her moral dilemma.
Life could be such a duplicit mirage sometimes.
People spent their lives pretending to be something that they were not. How do you handle being a Christian and wanting to live a full and true Christian life; being and acting like Jesus while yet battling the compulsion to be a cold-blooded psychopath? This was a conundrum; Faith hoped that was not a solitary existence.
Why did God make us with tempers if he knew it could lead us to commit immoral actions? How can we live a life that is pleasing to him, if we are hampered by a natural flaw?
How can we rise above it or simply be rid of it?
