I am selfish

I have problems-I promise I do

However, my problems aren't significant

So many people out there

Poverty stricken, in distress

But I can't seem to be happy

My brain's such a mess

I feel so ego-centric

I really do care about others

I promise

I don't know why I can't look at the bright side

I try! I promise I try

I feel like my whole life's a lie

I'm selfish because I don't have it THAT bad

I lie to people who care about me

I tell them I'm happy and not to worry

I don't want to be selfish

But that's all I can be
