ON DAYS I DO NOT THINK OF MY SELF  

When on days
Of self-centered adoration
I think only of my self
It is the start of a day
And an end of the day
Without satisfaction.

It is on those days,
That are all too few,
When my introspection
Is of others, and deeds are too,
That I find my days
Do not end in self-rejection.

Poignant.
Such a great message you've expressed so simply. I like how you also show that focusing on ourselves really just makes us more vulnerable to self-hurt due to focus on our flaws.

Very powerful words indeed and I couldn't agree with you more I think we are all the same deep down inside really. I hope that one day we can all learn to accept ourselves and love ourselves fully inspite of ourselves lol! Great write and well written!
