It’s in our system to feel this way,
making a meal
out of the way we stare
and still never having
to give away
anything we want.
It’s just another form of selfishness,
the way we cry
if we don’t feel sad
and sometimes laugh
when it gets too much.
That needed affirmation
that helps us overcome
and play these games
that only get us into trouble.
