Knowledge is power.

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
I am coated with unwanted coat of ego; painted in me

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

It is said; ‘acquire knowledge cradle to grave' don't dwell in me
I am a student until my last breath; beware of this instinct in me
‘Knowledge is power' take out unwanted egoistic feelings in me
Knowledge makes humble; I 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
We acquired fraction of knowledge; go ahead; don't disappoint me
I am 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!
