Life taught me a lesson 
 I hope to carry on
 Into my next existence 
 When this one is dead and gone

I learned that there is evil
 A devil inside man
 When given ample opportunity 
 Will do all it can

Ravage and vengeful 
 Vindictive, cruel and mean
 Corrupt to his core
 Jealousy turning green

Inside every woman
 A serpent dwells and coils
 Ready to strike and poison
 In garden where man toils

For only inside children
 So young they’ve yet to learn
 The fires that man is consumed
 That only destroy and burn

Race and gender ignorant
 In innocence they dwell
 Until heaven is broken
 Growing up and into hell
