Everyone Cares

People don’t care about you,
and if ever it seems that way
it is only because
everyone thinks that way,
that people care about them,
but the truth is they don’t.
People don’t care about you,
they care about themselves,
and thank God that they do.
For example think otherwise;
for example say otherwise;
for example say to me that
people do care about me,
(that means I am wrong.)
Will you do that for me,
or will you do that for you?
For example don’t tell me;
for example bite your lip;
for example let me think
as however I wish that,
people don’t care about me.
Will you do that, will you say,
nothing to me and if so,
will it be for peace’s sake,
will it be for your own sake,
or will it be for my own?
Or will whatever you do
what you say or you don’t,
what you think or you don’t,
if you care or you don’t,
will it be for a they
whoever they are?
If I’m found now an ass,
or whatever else bad,
is the determination for me
for punishment’s sake,
or is it for you
for the sake of your comfort?
Or does truth fall elsewhere,
somewhere in the gray,
somewhere I’ve missed?
Or am I just so far off base,
it’s not an issue of colors?
People don’t care about you.

      1. lol, I truly do believe this. I don’t think people are evil, that we need to be controlled, I’m not Machiavelli, but i do think we’re selfish. But yes, we are all entitled to our opinions, Erin.

      2. Errin, I hope you believe whatever you wish. When it comes to sweeping life meaning philosophies, who’s to say. Personal freedom, to me, is paramount. which IMO goes hand in hand with selfish.

      3. where it can seem sticky is how is that ensured for all if all are selfish, but that is where I think of concepts like Karma, something which i think is very practical not mystical. Karma is basically what comes around goes around, so it’s in one’s best interest to be good which is IMO selfish. But who knows.

  1. magnificent put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the other specialists of this sector do not understand this.
    You must proceed your writing. I am sure, you
    have a great readers’ base already!

  2. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared
    to be at the internet the simplest factor to have in mind
    of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people
    consider issues that they plainly don’t realize about.

    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
    whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
