He was rejected by the very people he relied for help. As a young boy, losing his parents placed him in a state of vulnerability. Never did he imagine he would be forsaken. He was disappointed in society.
Through his painful transformation, he eventually learned to not rely on anyone. He became independent. He didn't lean on anyone for support. He became unconstrained and unconventional.
His peace became the Dark. He based his beliefs and values in the abyss. A place many feared. From the unknown, he became the greatest super hero. He became The Batman. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Quote by @thepenandtheshade Caption by @BatmanLetters Art by Esau Murga

There is one constant in the immutable traits of Batman's character, as much an inherent and necessary part of him as anything else; The very act of killing another person is what he has devoted his whole life to working against, and it’s complete and utter anathema to him.
Batman is above killing his enemies; he believes in justice above all else, even if he lives in a city where the system of justice is often flawed. If you kill another person, you also become a killer. In doing so, you become a criminal. Murdering another soul will eventually spiral us down to evil.
The Dark Knight takes a chance everyday. He risks his own life to battle evil. In his attempt to seek justice, he shows empathy because after all, he is human.
Although I do believe in "eye for an eye", we should not respond to an evil deed by committing another evil deed, but rather we should respond to people’s bad character by behaving with good character.
God has encouraged his believers to show forgiveness. We should all show this compassion to those who have wronged society. We must show leniency because only God can judge us. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Art by Amir Hossein Taherkhani

He is not like those who betrayed you. He always knew you deserve better. He aspires for a different outcome. It is a cruel world. People break a good thing. He just wishes you had more faith in him. Perhaps he didn't deserve your love. There are people better, stronger and smarter than him. But he knows you won't find anyone like him. And he knows he won't find anyone like you. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ➖➖➖ Art by @gaming1empire

He keeps a close eye from afar, making sure those he loves are alright.
But he only belongs to the night, outsiders are forbidden to infiltrate his heart. Only the cold, aching darkness is privileged to know his true identity.
He makes an effort to hide his soul, to be concealed in the depths of the pitch black. He always makes sure those who he loves are safe and away from harm. He wants nothing but happiness for them.

All his efforts are for the well being of others. He seeks justice and makes sure everyone around him is safe.
But who is there for him? Who watches after him? Who will save him when he needs a hand?

"Part of her mystery is how she is calm in the storm and anxious in the quiet." She always finds a way to light up his sky.
Her beauty was different. Not everyone was capable of seeing it. Somewhere deep down, in her labyrinth, her intricacy, the darkest part of her soul, she relished the mayhem. She felt a sense of privilege for having such passion in her life.
Only he can bring that dark love that only she can understand. He stirred her core. The place she dared not enter. The place she could not stir for herself.
He has observed the unseen. He has heard what no man has discerned. He has felt what cannot be made out. He has sensed the unperceived.
How can Batman go through life after what he has been through? How can he overcome the deaths of his parents? How can he move forward knowing that evil is everywhere?
Many of us, like Batman, have gone through a lot of challenges in life. We have all gone through obstacles and suffered set backs. We have all stumbled and have been through difficulty and complications.
Some of us fail to move forward because we allow ourselves to dwell upon the negative thoughts. We should therefor recognize that God does what he wills for reasons that are only known to him. Any attempt to comprehend with our limited minds His wisdom, or to understand how our current situations fits in His overall plan can lead us to erroneous conclusions.
We should successfully maneuver through these barriers, learning the lessons needed to achieve our goals. We should not fear change or lack inspiration. We should have patience and take responsibility. Most importantly, we must have faith in our Creator that there is an underlining plan for us. There is a reason why we go through difficult moments in our lives.

Be proactive. Defend those who are persecuted, abused and subjugated. Help those victimized and assist the suppressed. Strive for righteousness.
Being without a father and or mother is the most challenging obstacle a child faces. Batman understand this concept because his parents were taken away from him at a young age. It is for this reason he focuses with an upmost importance on orphans. He believes they are the most vulnerable souls and he goes through great lengths to ensure their safety.

You know that you will be known as the miscreant. Your veracity will be erased as they will recount the story of their abandoned love.
You wish things were different. You wish your situation was disparate. But we can't change the past. We can't undo the words that were said. We can't disengage the situations that lead to our present state.
You want them to know that you were not with them for the short term. You did not want a temporary ride. You've seen darkness and light. You have encountered the good and the bad. You were looking for peace. You wanted nothing but tranquiltiy and calm. You were seeking an angel on a journey to forever. You did not want anyone else but them.
It takes courage to write and illustrate the stance between good from evil. The core of one's character is a challenge to understand because we are all faced with grander interpretations. Sometimes we play our cards too close to our chest and unintentionally hold back the truth.
While it creates confusion, some people will understand stand us and others will simply not. Those who do not will conjure a story to fit their means. They will make up the lapses created by their minds; Minds that were not able to fathom and understand your true intentions.
Some see Batman as a villain. They are blind to his true intentions. They will come up with excuses and pass rumors to degrade his character. Little do they know that it is because of their misunderstanding that they have now missed the opportunity to truly know who he really is. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Thank you @the_alternate_infinity for your quote in fueling this Batman theme caption.

We all know that we are going to die, but that order of knowledge, for most of us, is of the same kind that tells us we are all made of stardust, or that at the core of the atoms in our bodies and brains there is only a void. In other words, our imagination can’t grasp it. It’s just speculation, in this case a frightening one.
Death is part of life. There could be no meaningful life without it. It is part of the same process, a fluctuation of death and life. It sounds morbid. But the battle against mortal disease can never be won because it is a battle against the inevitable. To face our fate is to have the courage to live, even if it means dying a little earlier than expected, and even our families, might perhaps with more kindness than wisdom insist.
Batman’s weakness isn’t kryptonite, silver, or some otherworldly thing: it’s his own, very human nature. And that’s part of what makes him so compelling. Sure, Batman sometimes acts as a savior stand-in. But for the most part, he’s not a Messiah figure. He’s us.
He is part vengeance and the night. His unfathomable rage comes from his childhood memory, a harsh rude awakening of the realities of life. He dwells in darkness, his psyche is combined in Ego, Persona and the Shadow. Like many of us, not only does he battle his inner demons but he also fights external forces to protect what is right.
Today we face so many threats from the world we live in. But the biggest fear comes from within… the fear to fall. Even the most non technical analysis tells us that the main reason behind this fear is not the fall itself but being witnessed by the whole world while we fall.
Many of us work day in and day out to top the list of the performers in our chosen fields, and try to make ourselves conform up to the standards the world expects from us. There are many others who do not care about the world though, but are still working relentlessly to achieve their set goals. The thought of any fall in the way to success for both gives them jitters since it seems to have a potential of eventually culminating in a failure.
