We all tread ever onwards for our own selfish gain, 

To be one step further towards understanding why we feel so much pain.

Yet, we’re all too proud to realize that while in that greedy mindset, the truth we will never find.

We must stop and lend a helping hand to the ones who have fallen behind. 

For if we leave others stumbling in the dust of our biased gait, 

Our narrow minds will find that our road will grow narrow too, and leave us walking along the tapering path of hate.
