Think again

So, you deem yourself smart
Your knowledge unbeatable 
Your background impeccable 
You believe you have what it takes
To change the world, mend the wrongs 
With a sharp mind and a bold voice
Nothing will remain untouched
After your words have been spoken
Revolutionary ideas, remarkable intuition
But I have some bad news for you
You are not wanted
In a world of distorted ideals 
Where mediocrity is proclaimed perfection
And ambition is labelled as greed
You glorify your freedom
But the chains are tied to the bone
Slave to a system that wants you to fail
Intelligence and honor
Excellence and peace
Are meaningless words, parallel to reality
Don’t get me wrong, you can win
If you are willing to accept
Some blood on your hands
Some knives in your back
Some mud in your face
Are you strong enough 
To open your eyes and see the world for what it truly is
With the suffering and fear
Hypocrisy and facades 
Can you smell the stench of rotting integrity
The corpses of dignity
The last remains of humanity
I am not threatening you
I am pleading you to think again
