3 Words, 8 Letters

The English alphabet has 26 letters. Letters. They are just a few lines put together and some have curves.

Letters form words, words form sentences and sentences form paragraphs. The letters used to write the most magnificent poem are the same letters used to write a suicide note. These random letters put together in some way make us feel so many emotions. Envy, disgust, love, hatred, happiness, bliss, and literally every emotion you can think of but one thing never changes. It’s the same 26 letters. The possibilities it has are endless. We can choose what we want to do with it. Choose the wrong combination and create a very different outcome, a different emotion, a different reaction, a different ending.

It is the same set of letters that make you cry and laugh, it can hurt you, it can cheer you. It is the same number of letters that take to say “I love you” and “I hate you”, 3 words, 8 letters.

Give, Take

Lose, Gain

Chaos, Peace

Whole, Empty

Hard, Soft

Live, Kill

Devil, Angel

Notice how each pair of words have the same number of letters.
Coincidence? I think not.
They are two sides to the same coin.
It is because one is irrelevant without the other. There is no light without darkness, there is no good without evil, there is no love without hate. You cant appreciate peace until you experience chaos. You can’t always give, you need to take too. Gaining is meaningless if you haven’t known loss. You wouldn’t know how it feels to be whole if you don’t know how it feels to be empty. And even the devil was once an angel.
Back to my original point. It is the same number of letters that take to say “I love you” and “I hate you”. 3 words, 8 letters; that is all it takes.
