A Little Self Improvement


You cannot be true to others if to your higher self you are not true
If your narrow ways of selfishness you only do pursue
You well may read your bible but you take and never give
And you do ignore the basic law of live and let live,
You are a gift to women at least that's what you say
And just to say hello to you they go out of their way
But with your great imagination your own self you deceive
And to lie to you comes easy since your own lies you believe,
But even to narcissistic people there is a nicer side
That seldom is allowed to surface by the darker energy denied
For to raise above your weakness have you got the strength within
For to open the windows of your soul and allow enlightment in?
You can be a better person if you look into your soul
For a little self improvement is not beyond your control.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
