Impunity of the heart 

​What does it take

Sobering thoughts

Like a dowse of cold water

Thrown on a flame 

The flame dies out 

Nipped at the bud
Selfish thoughts

Self serving thoughts 

Fanned by feelings of lack….

Is there not enough to go round 

That you take that which belongs to another 
You plunder with impunity 

The impunity of  youth and society 

That allows you to get away with it

But do you sleep at night?

How do you escape 

Where do you escape to 

For there is nowhere to hide from yourself 

From your truth 

That reminds you how low you have fallen 

What’s the bounty 

Selfishly….to love yourself to the total exclusion of all else…
