Who in this world can "Know Thyself,"
When all they know is greed?
Who can use their power for good,
If corruption is power's creed?
Who can say, "I love you."
When they cannot love themself?
What can good intentions do,
If you just put them on the shelf?
How come all I see is pain and grief,
And never mirth or joy?
How can we keep our children safe,
If violence is their toy?
Why is it that bad gets worse,
But good will ne'er get better?
Why is it we seem content
To stay bound by our fetters?
When did good folks get replaced
By purely self-advancers?
How come all we get are questions,
And never any answers?
