The fifth verse of 'Annabel lee' be Edgar Allen poe: and we love that was greater than love of those who were older than we, of many far wiser than we,but neither the angels in heaven above nor the Desmond under the sea, can ever dissever my soul.....


I see these people have it worse than I
It makes me feel so selfish to despise
That while I wish to spread my wings and fly
All they have left to do is to realize
That they need help- and I pass over them; my
Eyes not fit to see the troubles they face
Hurting is no reason I should not try
To find a way their troubles I replace
With warmth; but all I ever do is sit
And watch as they suffer and ache so much
I know I should find some way to remit
Their pain; but their lives I rarely do touch
Some people have it so much worse than I
But I am selfish with how much I try

This is, in a way, my general outlook on the world around me. I try to volunteer and give and help others and whatnot, but it is in no way good enough.
