My name is Ambivalence. I know not of the ways those around me live. I am a ghost condemned to this globe called Earth, searching for my daughter, Kindness.Β 

My world died in the fires of protest, a civilization created by Peace and Prosperity.Β  My crime?Β  I believed our golden era could never end and failed to see Greed stop at nothing to prevail.Β  Greed created disease, and then Greed survived the death of our world, giving birth to Psychopath and Victim.

Five thousand years later, I watch the birth of twins; Obliteration and Apocalypse.

When can I rest?Β
