Selfishness

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 
abort your idealistic views. 
Your physical certainty is lack lustered, 
Coated with inadequacy. 
We are falsely led to believe there's more than just you and me. 
Yes this world is vast, 
Yet everything only revolves around the views on oneself. 
Selfishness is frowned upon, 
But self help is honored. 
Silly you,
You can't have one without the other. 
You're damned if you do, 
And utterly fucked if you don't. 
To love thyself or love thy neighbor, 
There's no in between. 
You can love one but not the other, 
Because to focus on someone else's every need is to neglect your own.
Sacrificial gestures can only hurt the one sacrificing everything. 
To live selflessly is idiotic. 
To desert everything you've worked towards for yourself is pathetic. 
The weaker minded will never comprehend that to be selfish is to be selfless
