It is more important to conquer oneself rather than others.
CONQUER THE SELF



As a child, I thought the world
Is only a playground,
Where we simply enjoy in
A big merry-go-round.

As I grew, I saw the world,
Just as a battleground,
Where the rights are in danger;
Injustice does abound.

But, now, after having fought
Those dangers external,
I believe we need to fight
Enemies internal.

Evil forces do linger
So often in our mind
Let’s conquer them rather than
Those of the outer kind.
