Tag Archives: Selfish

Your Own Denial*

Rejecting your own selfish strife
Not giving a dam about your wife
Leaving your children out of your life
Only your addiction in your sight

An expert at hiding your symptoms
Not able to handle your problems
Holding your family up for ransom
No responsibility for their outcome

Pity is a selfish emotion.

Who does it help as it sways like the ocean?

We hang on to it like it’s going to help;

All it does is drag us to the bottom like getting caught in kelp.
