“Are You Perfect” – Monologue

Christopher: Here I am. You caught me? Or maybe I’m just done running. In the middle of it all, all eyes on me. Tell me, what do you see? A monster. A mistake. Someone lost, afraid, flawed. So what? Are you perfect? I might be standing here right now, but one day this might be you. Or you. Anyone in the entire world could be standing right here, it just happens to be me. So go ahead, ridicule me, call me whatever you want, hate me even. But please, for once listen to me, I made a mistake. I know I did something terrible, and I can’t go back and fix it. I’m sorry. I’m sorry to the people I deceived, the lives I hurt, to the life I took. I deserve to be punished, I deserve to rot in prison until I die, cause that’s justice, right. But just know that this wasn’t all my fault. Yes, I killed her. It was me, these hands tainted with blood. So I got the blame, everyone blamed me. That’s right, you all took this terrible moment and blamed it all on one person, me. Where’d that get you? Are you happy now? You think she’s happy now? There’s something wrong with this society, with the world, I’m a part of it and so is every one of you. You are all like me, one day you are all going to be exposed and everyone’s eyes will be on you. Once I’m gone, you better be careful cause the target might be your head. And once that target is your head, there’s nothing you can do. You can try to reason, you can give an inspiring speech, you can speak the truth, but no one’s gonna save you. Because you are all too afraid, too afraid to be next. One by one we all go down, and there’s no one to blame but ourselves. Go ahead, cuff me. I’d rather be behind bars than in this hell.
