That's what People see

People see what they want
Nothing ever matters to them unless it's them
Forget about caring about other people
Forget that I was there for you
Forget that we used to be friends
People see themselves
I know they look at the homeless on the street
But they never see
I know they see the bullying
But they never take action
I know that they see what they want
Which will not help them
Anymore then it will help you
That's what people see

I love this, actually. it's very good. It's a great point; people really see what they want to, they have selective vision. Their self-centeredness is extraordinary. I try not to be like them.
