Self-indulgence is becoming our drug of choice
One sound rings above all others, our own voice
Our desires, dreams and wishes, all that matter
Other people voicing their needs, just idle chatter
This hedonistic view often causes others’ much pain
Exerting ourselves, when we have something to gain
Family men, cheating on wives, because it feels good
The swindlers, bilking others, just because they could
Guys tell girls whatever; just to get into their pants
Girls flaunting their sexuality, just to get a guy’s glance
People wanting comments; that never read your works
People giving nothing and still expecting all the perks
The whole world revolving around me, myself and I
Intense personal gratification all that makes you high
Justifying any means, for your happiness in the end
Kissing up, then stabbing in the back; just a phony friend
I have decided not to give the benefit of the doubt
Until I have ascertained what each person is about
It might sound cynical, but the world has shown me
Not to be so blindly trusting, not all is, as it should be
