The light is always outnumbered by the dark. The beautiful is always outnumbered by the ugly. The intelligent is always outnumbered by the dumb. The sincere is always outnumbered by the petty. The truth is always outnumbered by the lies.
It's just how it is in the world of this and that. The one is always comparatively small, fleeting, delicate but radiant. The other is always vast, dense, imposing but hollow. The darkness is always threatening to consume the light, which may shine brightly for a time but always goes out eventually. It's just how it is.
Though it seems that new sources of light are always cropping up too. Like stray flowers blooming in the cracks of thick pavement. Or graffiti appearing on a freshly white-washed wall. Life finds a way.
