Self Obsession

Let's be honest about this.
The one true enemy we have,
Is our self obsession.

We've been taught to believe,
Someone else desires what we possess.
And wishes to bleed from us,
A way to get it.

Our self centeredness,
Surrounds us with paranoia.
We neither have peace nor rest!
And yet we accept isolation,
As a means to forget our own failures.

The day will come when we will wake up,
And see the nonsense behind our self inflicted pain...
We seek to blame on someone else.
Only to 'create' an enemy to keep us happy,
And delusional about how great we are.
And if that was true...
Why are we continually bickering amongst ourselves,
About who is better and more qualified to have life
With more greed and little to no peace to go with it!

Let's be honest about this.
The one true enemy we have,
Is our self obsession.
