Selflessness

And I screamed

At God when

Is it my

Turn when do

I get everything

That You promised

He quietly replied

Selflessness is everything

That I promised

Selfishness brings about

Plagues and fire

And destruction and

Famine and lewdness

Greed and gluttony

Whereas selflessness brings

Comfort and peace

Truth and courage

Humility and clarity

Would you rather

Be the one

That ignites the

Fire or the

One that can

Put it out
