Selfish Living

Maybe I should bite my tongue to keep from

Letting out steam

Not wanting to beat a dead horse

But I got a come clean

Many people are barking up the wrong tree

In their approach to life

Being stuck on themselves

Their problems are rife

They bending over backwards to

Have their own way

Hammered by conflict

Being in a constant fray

Narcissistic and pathetic

Caught in between

Rock and a hard place

Chasing the dream

Sorry to ramble on

I’m beating around the bush

Time to get to the point

Reveal the truth

Livin fo yo self

Is a dead end street

One day you gonna die

Your creator you’ll meet

So better get with the program

Get to living for Him

Before you kick the bucket

And meet the reaper grim
