O self, wake up!



O self, do you expect results without work?
Where have you been and what have you seen of this harsh world that you would expect such a thing?

It is with amazement that I view your ignorance, and it is with ridicule that I view your actions.

O self, when do you plan to wake up from your heedlessness? For if you continue on this path surely you will be doomed.
So I advice thee to wake up to the reality that is life.
