Selfishly

Foolish we are for trying

Who are we to change the world

Trying to make a better place for those who don’t welcome change

We are racing into a hurricane that is pushing us out

Still we try and can’t stop ourselves

It’s not because they are undeserving of our efforts

We don’t do it for them

We try and do because we can’t live with ourselves if we don’t

It is a selfish reason that we make an effort

Then selfish are we, no better than those we are trying to help

We learned it’s better to live with ourselves

Then spent a lifetime hating ourselves

So selfish we are

We try and do because we couldn’t live with ourselves if we didn’t
