Ignorance

Ignorance plays havoc in my mind,
Listening to these stalwarts,
and their wise speeches,
hammering right through my brain,
Nails of ignorance and inferiority,
There is mind blurring pain,
Only word that comes out clear is 'quit,'
But quitting hurts the ego,
It manages hold its head high,
in the midst of this grueling pain,
It refuses to accept defeat,
The mortal me  ,
And my unrelenting mind,
is cursed to fight once again,
the battle against ignorance,
the battle against inferiority,
Only to know at the end,
How less I know,
And how low I am,
Is it the same for  you,
All you  mortals out here?
