Blinded by the Life

I am righteous without experience

I am proud without honor

I have principles without morals

I see clearly with no vision

I have strength without mercy

I have knowledge without truth

I demand respect but set no example

Hypocrisy be my loathing but it also be my guide

My mind is a muscle, my body merely its tool

Soul long forgotten, spirit overruled

I am a man living in ignorance and happy to be..

Blinkered by Goverment, motivated by gain

Inward thinker, placing the blame
