The selfishness within

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 05:49 -- Kg520

Is success solely based on a monetary value
Or is it about impact, leaving behind memories as you recall what I tell you
How do you plan to leave this earth
Take the funds and run, or build deep on love for what it's worth
When the key to survival is to treat each other as a rival
One what do what's vital
Ain't no rules, therefore no one is liable
Cash, sex, drugs- vices that run free
That's the basis of our media and society
But what happened to pure joy
From the small moments that matter
Touching someone's life
Instead of stomping on them as you climb the ladder
Leaving memories and truly breathing it in
This world is about the selfishness within
