Beware the puppeteers of egotism,
The master manipulators of pain-
These things have a habit of dying in vain;
Piety, virtue and altruism.
The beliefs, overshadowed by lack of empathy,
In every instance by the notions of superiority-
Manic is the mysterious calm of existence-
Of habits that create webs of resistance,
The trapped unaware of the eternal deception-
The diminishing chances for freedom and redemption.
