Me First?

By: Sharon D. Jones

But how can I worry about me first
Do I overlook everyone else?
Is that a possibility
For me to be concerned with self?

But how can i just worry about me
What about my hopes and dreams?
Can I alone make them become reality?
Can I alone change things?

Will I just worry about me?
Pretending not to hear their pleas
Do I close my heart completely?
Ignoring even your needs?

Do I only be concerned with me?
Blocking out all of the rest
Is this the way to be free?
Is this way best?
