The difference between selfishness

And selflessness is simple

The first is survival

And the second living

When one is selfish

One thinks of oneself

When one is selfless

One only thinks others

Put it another way

Love occurs inside selflessness

And is expressed outwardly

Greed occurs inside selfishness

And is expressed inwardly

To live love out


I’m not kidding

Not this time

Don’t kid yourself

Not this time

This doesn’t work

It’s never worked

Not this time

And not before

Or even tomorrow

So why kid

Me or you

Why pretend this

Why pretend that

When all this

And all that

Means absolutely nothing

If we are

Anything at all

It is exactly

That simply that

And finally that

Nothing at all
