My Concept Of Selfishness
(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

My Concept Of Selfishness

When I began to prioritize my life,
By placing it at the top of my agenda...
With no debating it day or night,
Those who became offended by this choice I made...
And had beliefs I had no rights to prioritize,
Have now begun to realize...
What they had criticized as my being selfish,
Has left me with no alternative...
But to show them,
Just what my concept of selfishness is.
With a doing to pursue my own happiness to live.
And...
With one difference.
No longer am I so quick,
To share with others my experiences...
At my expense to have them benefit.
