The essence of ignorance is dense

It worsens when with stupidity we compliment

Our failure to achieve starts with blaming society

It stops when with our own actions we claim responsibility

This is not that hard to swallow

Motivation and a leader I sought to follow

I searched high and low but comfort I could not find

It seems everyone I asked was also blind

Is there someone who can see, who’s elevated above the rest

Is there someone who has not failed in life, who has somehow passed the test

If there is, please stand up and help me become a better man

Cause my ignorance fogs my judgment and simplicity I can’t understand
