Mankind are that kind of people:
Who think they know where they are going 
But don’t know where they stand, yet so grand
To call themself "intelligent" but intelligence
Has no space for stupidity and the painful reality
Yet stupid-ness is our greatest weakness, and I had to witness
The truths we call lies and lies we call truths
As we lie to ourselves just to hear the truths
Don’t you get it mentally? But visually don’t you see?
Like tear spark up emotions, they words spark up devotions 
To the truth: that in life we live but yet we live to die
And wandered why our mothers cry and inside they die
Regrettably, you’ve got to know this regardlessly
That scientist: people who claim to know the earth;
Claim to know that outer-space but don’t understand the inner-space
The brain, the mind, the third eye for the blind.
Even school has to learn from life, 
That in life you take a test to learn your lesson
‘Cause next time you won’t be guessing 
Or messing and have a chance for passing
You must be hard headed, 'cause you'll surely learn
As times turn; wheel churn and riches do burn
