Ignorance is only as powerful as we allow to be. Condemming others for their differences only keeps you blinded to the larger picture.

So are we not to challenge yet only accept
The endless conditioning society bestows
Upon it's sincerest minds?

Behold the fountains of creative life
And soon one will discover
All beings were comprised
From within this universal print
The master plan was never
Man against fellow man

IGNORANCE, is the reigning evil
The more we sacrifice our unity
So does immorality increase in supremacy
To all those sheilded from the truth
Their own descent from the prime creator
Shall they unknowingly achieve

IGNORANCE is not a state of bliss
But a tragic seperation from
The universal design of brotherhood

The malevolent force grows stronger everyday
As we grin and persecute others
We slowly laugh ourselves into a prison
One from which IGNORANCE gratefully
Conceals the keys of love and acceptance

Together, people can disipate these bonds
And diminsh this expanding presence of evil
Eagerly observing mankinds descent,
For it's rule here relies upon us

Love preceeds the truth
Understanding necessitates compassion
Fear unleashes hatred
Lack of vision leads to enslavement

So, who will march victorious in the conquest for love
And who shall remain shackled with IGNORANCE
In the laughing prison forever?
