Maybe They are Right…

i am not surprised
that they say i am lonely
that i am self obsessed
that i am selfish
and past my best
that i care for no one
but myself,
that they would accept me
if only i was somebody else
i am not surprised
at every ego driven word
and every self centred poem
only confirms to them
that maybe, they are right
i am not surprised
i am just very full
with a belly full of lies
and i am so tired
from constantly rolling my eyes
perhaps i am,
the things they say
so i will just sail this boat
and see what comes my way
i have the warm embrace
of those who decided to stay
