Self


Selfless

There is no such word

Existing on paper but not in truth

For the satisfaction of the self is what motivates.

Lies, tell them to me

To yourself

For whom is it you convince?

Not I. Not we. For we feel the same.

No currency could purchase

No apothecary could harness

For we all die

On the inside that much is known

Or alluded to

But fact

It eludes

It is not the nature of people to compete with colleagues

It is the behaviour bestowed that entices
