See everything in me; but have to come out of ego in me
Have not done anything; don't know why I am proud of me!
Thinking why so quickly slip out of ethics; I see flaws in me
Coated with unwanted coat of ego; it keeps worrying in me

One day I went inside of me; ask why so much, me, me, me?
This is natural; with small success hypnotize with word of me
And dwell in his kingdom; forget there is a world outside of me
When someone takeover my domain of ego; I turned red in me

Rememer; ‘acquire knowledge cradle to grave' don't dwell in me
I'm a student until my last breath; beware of this instinct in me
‘Knowledge is power' take out unwanted egoistic feelings in me
Knowledge makes kind & humble; feel power of knowledge in me

Miracles of knowledge turned stones and dust into beauty of me
After achieving great miracles; why taking 'U' turns; annoys me
Acquired fraction of knowledge; go ahead; don't disappoint me
I want to see; and anticipating more miracles of Jesus in me!

Jesus' miracles and Mohammed's peaceful revolution make sense to me
If both combine together; can achieve peaceful solutions; believe me
By negating each other; ridiculing ourselves; doesn't make sense to me
Purpose of our creation is ‘the peace' is that simple; understand me!
