Don’t run away.
Deal with this personuntil you findsomething good.
Seek outthe part about themstill unturned
At some pointwe were infantswho have offended no one
and if nowas an adultsomeone is evil
you must go backto that infancy
and once you have foundthat sliver of goodthey are no longer completely evil
if you can findthat good thingyou can change them entirely
to do thisis every person’s responsibility
and untilthey do penanceyou have redeemed them
and if I can do thisfor another
I must do iteven more sofor myself
