Selfish

I have highs & lows.
the pendulum is moved by any ever slight change.
selfish is my trigger word & my they know it.
call me whatever u want but don’t call me selfish – yet here I am
broke & still selfish, 
sad and dependent – still selfish.
I am drowning every day but saving others around me.
I watch as the life boat i help load sails away.
My kids on my shoulders, my nose just above water, but it’s ok. Just don’t call me selfish.
