There’s only one lesson above all else
If you simply want to live a good life
Ignore the detractors and know thyself

A young man should grow and refine himself
Not shying away from struggle and strife
There’s only one lesson above all else

Likewise a woman seeks reason herself
Deciding to wed and become a wife
Ignore the detractors and know thyself

Control the power to build your own wealth
And carve your own way with a keen edged knife
There’s only one lesson above all else

Respect your body to maintain your health
Remain in control of the fork and knife
Ignore the detractors and know thyself

They will come for you with guile and stealth
And dressed up advice is blatantly rife
There’s only one lesson above all else
Ignore the detractors and know thyself
