What Is Evil?

Thanks to a prompt on DVerse, I found part of a poem to share for One-Liner Wednesday. When I was younger, I read a whole book of Kahlil Gibran’s works and loved it. 

And one of the elders of the city said, Speak to us of Good and Evil.
     And he answered:
     Of the good in you I can speak, but not of the evil.
     For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?
from “On Good and Evil” by Kahlil Gibran
