Val is a life-long student of unexplored human potential and many challenges that self-honesty throws at us on that path.
Why should you suffer for world's stupidity
no one is asking for your opinion or advice
and why be bothered by the news morbidity
media business is not even meant to be nice.
Other people's games are their own affairs
they don't know how to end what they start
and when you're in trouble world won't care
they are just so quick to tell you to get smart.
World is nothing but one colossal abstraction
to know it, hundred lifetimes wouldn't suffice
and yet, we judge it by that familiar fraction
seen between images of hell or paradise.
If you want to empathize with the mankind
your choice of feelings couldn't be tougher
for, how do you really make up your mind
whether to be happy for them or to suffer.
World you hardly know shouldn't make you worry
shouldn't even be concerned about your nation
because for all that misery you can't feel sorry
from those rejoicing you won't get invitation.
Thus enjoy your own life as best as you can
mobilize your mind, and your heart as well
having no concerns about fate of the man
for, what's going on, that no one can tell.
