Patterns in the foreground
Might have a tale to tell
Whispering. . . Can you see it?
Proximity. . . outside the gates of hell
Within the Spirit of thoughtful giving
When another’s hand is closed
With resource not an issue
Just Selfish, I suppose
Reciprocation, perhaps just acknowledgment
Is it way too much to ask
Or is it life’s way of illumination
Or, do I need to take myself to task
Is it placed there as a demonstration
To reflect the path you need
Giving others credibility
They don’t need you, to succeed
So, is Selfishness really a virtue?
As Ayn Rand might confer
Becoming a beacon of confidence
Knowing others can also earn their worth?
