We Are Selfish

It is totally different
To distinguish at present
Time and again it is felt
The fragrance is not smelt

We have proved worthless
Many times lied on face
Cheated near ones
And ditched real friends

What makes us peculiar?
Knowingly unfamiliar
With serving of self interest
And stick to it at our best

We are selfish and self centered
Good things don't alter
Our position
Worst to existing tradition

We grab, murder and even snatch
The property by force to reach
Respectable position and status
This creates mistrust

Oh, I must admit after all what I have seen, this poem speaks of greatest truth. And IF I may say: men are more selfish than women, so sorry to say this, but I have too, since here is a line about that matter. Thank you so much for sharing, Sir. 5 hours ago by Sylvia Frances Chan | Reply
