"Morality is a Fickle Thing" by Anahi Moreno Enriquez
"A hero would sacrifice you to save the world, but a villain would sacrifice the world to save you." @th3heiroslytherin on TikTok
Morality is a fickle thing
You've expected to sacrifice everything for the greater good
So that you get rewarded with nothing but loss and desperation
You lose passion
You gain anger
You lose love
You gain isolation
Why lose the love of your life?
Pardon me but I am not so easily pressured
Do not expect me to risk my everything for nothing
No danger shall touch my Lily
Are all too great to waver
Don't call me evil when I prioritize myself
Don't call me selfish when I protect my treasure
The world makes you choose
So don't blame me for choosing happiness.
