So I’ll bring you pain, I’ll bring you horror so that you may rise above it.”
It should have been glorious. I tried to help them. I merely intended to inspire mankind to all that is intended. To earn and deserve His love. His protection and care. In all the universes, in all the many worlds that exist, only man has had this greatest gift bestowed unto them. And even with this, they stumble, and fall to the very depths.
No matter what these humans do: lie, cheat, steal, rape, kill… if they repent, they are forgiven. They do not value this gift, though. They abuse it, reject His acceptance. And over the millenia I have watched these most beloved sink lower and lower, until they wallow in the mire of the darkness in their black souls.
Perhaps my course was winding, a twisted road to redemption; but it was necessary. I still believe that. And I still believe I was proven right; for behold the light that shone unto the withered heart who stood against me. Yes, He has denied me absolution for my actions; but one must suffer, must bleed and fall to be raised back up.
I stand fast in the knowledge that, while my wings may have tarnished and fallen to flame, I am exonerated by the light that has shone in the souls of my Fathers most favoured.
