Nothing I've Become

by Lakesha T. Jenkins

Save me from the nothing I've become....
The endless ooze of narcissism that hides the possibility of becoming part of something more
My world incredibly small with only room for Id & Ego
Selfishness so grand that even the prospect of otherness 
is shot down by the 3 pronged vote issued by Me, Myself & I
Best interests unconsidered as fear clouds the idea of participating in the larger world
Myself my own jailer, by Me adjudged to be guilty of introversion & self isolation 
So who do I blame when loneliness & self become one?
The blankscape that is the landscape of my own creation moves from salvation 
to a place of incapacitation & I am unable to escape
Realizing I am against Myself & there is only Me to blame
How then can I ever save me from the nothing I've become?
