Narcissism at its Finest

I may falter on a few steps,
but my eye is on the goal

My spine is made of solid gold,
my heart is made of stone

My limbs have gone limp with heat,
my body growing heavy

My eyes are bloodshot, filled with tears,
and yet my pace is steady

I remember what I came here for,
it pushes me ahead

My conscience is long gone for now,
the path I leave is dead 

My mind quivers at the thought of you,
my vision starts to blur

But the prize I see in the end is: me,
and the souls that I have hurt.

    Definitely has a strong narcissistic twist and bite by the end. Very harsh and raw, most enjoyable to read....suppose I am a narcissist? No, I don't suppose; I know lol
