Selfishness

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
