Ego and Virtue (poem)

A lesson that I learned at an early age
There is no need for all of this rage

We all need to be decent
This much is not recent

I’m not sure where we went wrong
It has been this way for too long

Too long that our leaders
Have lied to the readers
And stolen all of the heaters

Everybody matters just as much as you
I really thought you knew
I thought there were more than two

All of this ego and fighting
Will leave us with no lighting
That will for sure be biting

Politics and violence are not the way
This much is proven every day

We need ego to strive for the top
We need virtues so as not to ruin the crop

Both can work hand in hand
This is what I understand

Following the path we currently choose
Surely equals we will loose
