None the Wiser

I have stared into the abyss

And have come back feeling none the wiser

It did not leave me in contentment or bliss

I do not understand this cipher

 

Every year I believe I am getting smarter

Every year I think I lose a bit more of myself

I don’t doubt I will fail this barter

For we strive to help our self

 

Selfishness reigns over all of us

Even in moments where we try to be virtuous

That does not make us any less

No matter what we must be courageous

 

So I guess I learned one thing in my inspection

Humans are selfish despite our objection
