That suffering is only pain is a grave misconception
Pain is our greatest teacher, there is no exception.
To see, to feel, to act, that is specific to us alone
But to the uneducated mind, other’s reasons are unknown
To think that diplomacy could end all wars
You must have shut the damned behind locked doors
Oh yes, we read about injustice and we weep
But when opportunity knocks, we are fast asleep.
To think that being selfish is a negative trait
You must be ignorant to the problems selflessness can create
The saddest misconception, maybe of them all
Is that we can do nothing to prevent our fall.
