Self Absorbed

My feelings for today Are some people just display Total disregard for others In a confined space With many people in place All you can think about is YOU Aware only of yourself Complete dismissal for anyone else Where does such arrogance come from? You feel superiority to the rest No compassion do you possess How did you become so self absorbed? You selfishness causes confusion Creating doubt and disillusion Disappointment in mankind Believing rules don’t apply to you You just do what YOU intend to do Is the utmost contempt No spoken word will set you straight Or will ever resonate As for you…. YOU are all that matters!

The way of narcisism. A lonely road to self destruction. Sad choice. Thanks for your thoughts on the subject through your poetry my friend. Hugs, Bill

I completely agree with your sentiments, dearest Deb. These people exist only for themselves and take advantage of everyone else! Personally, I do not respect anyone of them. Beautiful writing. Blessings!

Thanks Shirley….that man irritated and annoyed me with his total lack of regard but he also inspired me to write about how horrible he was!!! Debxx

You have described me to a 'T!' Deb. Maybe I can hire you to write my memoirs for me. ~ gw

You are a world traveler, Deb. I agree with your sentiments on self centered people. You always find your path around the hurdles, for you know where you are going. Stay the course! Happy Birthday, soon!!

Step forward and read all you politicians out there - you know who you are..or actually.. do you? I'm intrigued by the YOU in capitals at the end Deb. I may be reading too much into it but are you referring to someone on high here and finishing with a message that serves to counterbalance / contrast all that that has preceded it? Cheers - Gary

Actually Gary it was inspired by a horrible ,gross man on the plane who was so self absorbed, disgusting, inconsiderate , rude and totally pissed me off to be completely honest! Ha…..but the poem was about all those YOU’S in our world that have an attitude of entitlement and superiority for reasons unknown and are oblivious to the needs or feelings of others! Enough venting for now….hehe! Debx

Hey Tom Thankyou for your comment. Went to Singapore first now in Dubai with my son. So hot here. My dad passed away in Singapore while he was posted there. We also lived in Singapore for six years altogether as ex-pats so Singapore is dear to my heart. My 60th is on the 18th….last of the 50’s forever!! Debx
