I have a conundrum

Which might be paradoxical

How do opposites attract

Not yet also destroy

I’m not talking about

Tolerate or compliment or

Shoring of plugging holes

How does someone selfless

Remain abundant around those

Greedily hoardingly whorishly selfish

How does one remain

Buoyant and breathing when

Others are cluelessly clutching

Is survival an act

Of selflessness or selfishness
