I Can See Your Sanity – Poem

there’s a moment in your life
when you must question everything you are
and if you can’t accept one thing about yourself
then you aren’t worthy of the whole package

if you can love others and reject yourself
then you have solved the question of selfishness
for people who are selfish will drown in their sins
but those who are selfless will receive their reward in heaven

when you do something that helps you and hurts others
you will ultimately suffer from pain and anguish
because you have ignored someone else’s suffering 

beware of your selfishness
