Life Is Selfish
There was a time, where I was alone,
Even though I smile today, the shards are still within.
Given time, I’d allow you to feel the sharp ends,
But don’t flatter yourself, I don’t fall freely.
You should well know, that life ain’t sweet.
Life is selfish,
So you have to be selfish yourself.
For time is not the giver of life,
But the dawn of the end that follows the knife.
