“I Am a Selfish Person”

 

I am a selfish person

A certain self-assertion

The world rolls out before my eyes

I am the center of it all

Fault me not

Such facts perceived

Somewhere deep inside of me

 

How else would I see things?

 

I am a selfish person

Most certain of this assertion

The world is built of self-told lies

The universal point of it all

Faults forgot

Most facts recede

In the darkest depth of me

 

How else could I see things?
