You are the center of the world
-At least in your own eyes
The sun, the moon, the distant stars
The clouds in yonder skys
Exist- you think- for only you
-You just don't realize
You are but dust - just like the rest
-Comes that a big surpise?
I'm overworked and overtaxed
-It's not worth my demise
To acquiesce to your each whim
-You know no compromise
Perhaps the problem's stunted growth
-A baby in disguise?
Perhaps your heart's a bit too small
-Might need a bigger size?
To ponder this - I'm not equipped
My best guess but surmise
I've had my say - perhaps too much
So now I'll summarize
The answer to your misery
-Within your soul it lies.

OOOOHHH!
Scary, and so true of many people I know. That's another pet peeve of mine, people who think they're "God's Gift..."
Good answer to it!

I liked this one Denise, God wants us to be humble. Even our righteousness is but filthy rags! Great poem of humbleness!

Denise you did a great job describing self-centeredness. If I spelled that correctly.
I know a few like that. The EGO gets in the way. I hope it helped you to write it down. I know sometimes just to write it will help so you're not fuming over it in your mind!
I've had a few of those. (((((HUGS)))))

Thank you one and all for your wonderful responses! What a surprise! I didn't think anyone would care for this!

And Seymour, I guess I don't have it in me! I've never spoken like this to anybody!(wished to a few times though!)

Thanks again, everybody!

You surprised me Denise!! But pleasantly of course. Glad you got to exorcise those feelings. Well done!

Thank you, Isis, for reading and commenting!
(nothing wrong with a little surprise now and then, eh?!)
