the right path

you learn
quick
that while
being the
better person
is the right path
when you decide
to walk it
you’re likely
all alone

people
do not ever
stop to
consider others
so self absorbed
they only see
themselves as
the ones put out
so they choose
to pass the buck

you never know
you’re the villain
when the entire
story is
focused on you
you just assume
you must be
the downtrodden hero

i guess that
i am not selfish
because mostly
i hate myself
which is
thoroughly compounded
by how easily
people take advantage
of the lowly fool

one day
i will escape
the hell of my
indentured servitude
and tell them all
to kiss my ass
until then
if you need me
i will be the
only one working
as dallas burns
around me
