Selfish Me

I don't deserve all the things i get
and i most of the time i try to forget
the stars twinkling lights shine for me
but still i weep for what never can be
the soft grass reaches up for my hand
even though i belong to the desert's sand
the plains open up for me to see
but why does it do it just for me
the mountains tower over to protect
though i only feel the need to reject
i'm thankful for the moon's light
even so little, it still gives me sight
and i'm thankful for the sun's ray
for it always lights the way
I don't deserve all the things i get
so now i ask that you please forget
I may seem small and hopeless
but i'm not that careless
take back what you gave
because you did more than save
send your love with a kiss if you wish
even though i am so selfish
and i still don't deserve all the things i get
for now i often try to forget.

Love it. So selfless and that's exactly what art is- a very selfless thing.   You're an artist!
