ALTRUISTICALLY ALONE
(11/3/19)


selfish

self involved

self consumed

continual
criticisms
all objectively
justified

but I
am truly
thinking
of others
in my
isolation

no one
else
should have
to travel
beside me

as I reject
society

as I devalue
institutional
thought

as I feed
on the fringes
never fully joining
the family
human

I really
do
have your
best interests
at heart

as I walk
by myself

away
from you
