The Jackal lingers in the deepest darkness of every soul.... many spew claims of purity but they soon dissipate into the reality that with even the mildest of false intentions it's the initial thought that instigates us off the path of purity and nobody gets thru life without confronting at least some small piece of the deepest darkness every soul holds.......... only self -righteous fools would disagree......
