my lessons of man.

my lesson are here for me to learn, discern, observe,
my lesson one, man never to trust,
lesson we need to learn all the time,
Im I lonely because nobody can true pity me?
Im I lonely because the world out there is indifferent, ?
Im I lonely because nobody helped me?
Im I lonely because I cannot see inside your face, ?
Im I lonely because I've been set up many at times in my lifetime, ?
Im I lonely cause I give and never receive?
Im I lonely cause they tried to ruin me?
Im I lonely cause I loved my life?
Im I lonely cause only the rest could Kill, ? I'm Ionely cause Christ said follow me alone?
or I'm I lonely cause I really dont know?
no man or teacher is there to teach me truth at home and in the streets,
tell me why?
