impunity

What does it take
Sobering thoughts
Like a douse 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 of how low you have fallen
What’s the bounty
Selfishly….to love yourself to the total exclusion of all else…
