They are who they are. Who they think they are. But never themselves. They’ll never be what they think, for they live only in the people surrounding them. Not themselves.

When people are selfish, Only thinking about them. When they hurt you but only think about the way they feel. When someone is so completely mean to you but they only think about THEMSELVES and how it makes them feel. Selfish people. Selfish, Selfish people.

The group of protesters gathered in the narrow, shady street in front of the offensive construction site. They tied themselves down to their chairs with the coarse rope, waiting for the final member of their group to arrive with the necessary tools to carry out their plan. Finally, about ten minutes later, she walked in with lighter fluid and a box of matches. Their eyes were glued to the concrete floor, thinking their last few thoughts, focusing on all their lives had ever been: which wasn’t much, considering they were only college students. But they had made their decision. She soaked each of them with the flammable contents of the bucket before she, too, tied herself down to a chair. They each took the match she had previously given them and looked around at each other, until they all started counting down, inhaling deeply. “Three…” They closed their eyes. “Two…” their faces were the epitome of tranquility as they reached the last number in their countdown. “One.”

Anywhere. It is the them that you are not a part of.
It is the security i do not have, the boy love, the socialness.
They are themselves, themselves, themselves.

life, give, love. everything they do by themselves so they can make someone else’s life better . they sacrifice themselves to be loved and accepted.

why can’t they think for themselves? they always decide as a clique. i mean honestly, when you’re older and living on your own, youre not going to have friends to help you choose what you want in life; that’s all your decision. make your life the way you want it to be, not what your group of friends want it to be. heck, jump out of an airplane, or bungee jump off a bridge, not because your friends want to, but because YOU want to.

They walk, heads close
Sharing breath, whispers, secrets
But not lonely

They are not who they think or wish they are. They are not who we think or wish they were. They are but they. Nothing more, nothing less, nothing at all, but themselves.

Themselves, they knew what they wanted
Birds on each hand
Feathers for fingers

So, even if they just were going down the street, the only thing they could talk about was: Themselves. What were they looking at? Themselves. Why? Because. Pigeons know nothing else. Than. Themselves.
By Maily on 11.08.2012
All by themselves. Thinking, sitting, waiting. But what for? Ahh – It is what we all wait for…That undiscovered purpose for the tick inside one’s chest. Some call it Love.
By Tasha URL on 11.08.2012
I watched them as they talked amongst themselves. They all fit together like a puzzle except all the pieces were from different puzzles. All these different races and creatures’ talking together as causally as possible. It was such an extrodinary sight.

Most people think of themselves as a big name champion. As for me, I think of myself as a lover. A lover of those who need it, those who want it. You, yourself can be loved too.
By Ashley Straub on 11.08.2012
everyone always thinks of themselves when really they should be thinking of other people….not always but most of the time….fucking selfish people annoy the shit out of me…and JUST THINK OF SOMEONE ELSE FOR A CHANGE….

They themselves were confused on what had happend that evening. everything flew by so quickly. The whole night had been a whirling swirl off mess. The delaris must have been part of this mess but maybe they werent maybe they didnt know about the plan. but it must have been full proof. but however maybe it wasnt.
By Juliette on 11.08.2012
Everyone thinks of themselves because self-preservation is the first priority. No one wants to get left behind or stepped on as the rest of the pack climbs the corporate ladder. If they succeed, they’ll only have themselves to thank.

They didn’t like themselves. They thought of themselves as poorly uniformed, poorly trained, poorly led. They didn’t expect a victory. They didn’t expect power or control. They wanted…what did they want?
By Martha on 11.08.2012
staring out the window
to the snow and the rain and the heartbreak
they huddle like crows at the bus stop every day
and the old women say,
their cigarette butts go cold in the puddles
when they leave.
and nobody is sure
where they go off to.

They did it to themselves. They forced it upon themselves. They had no choice but to break away from life as they knew it and hurt those who they were closest to. Themselves. They were all that mattered now. Vaulting ambition had overridden their moral consciences to the point of no return. They had taken precedence over everything else. It was all about themselves.
By Hi on 11.08.2012
Themselves, they are completely and utterly unaware of themselves and what they are doing, and how they are making decisions. Though nothing will change them no matter what….they still are who they are. All I want is for them to understand who and what they are doing in this ver moment. Do they even know? they are themselves, though could they define, truely who temselves really are. Themselves, only, alone, holistically unaware, but totally and innately whole. Every person has the strength inside them….to harness it is human nature…to be aware of it is humane. Themselves…they are, purely themselves….every person in the struggle to embrace and understand what they are thinking and feeling. The motivation to get out of bed, to make …whatever i is for breakfast….do you know why or what??? The question could drive you mad, or set you free.

They looked at themselves in the mirror and admired each others differences, wondering why they would never be satisfied with who they were
By c on 11.08.2012
They were always off by themselves. And no-one ever questioned, or stared, or wondered why this was so; for it had been since they were young that they remained alone. And so by themselves they stayed. With no-one else to disturb the tranquility they found in each-other.
By Ender URL on 11.08.2012
everybody minds themselves
in their own worlds
until small-school college gossip
and we are separately
together in groups
of collective otherness,
in their private business
By sp on 11.08.2012
They were broken. It wasn’t that they weren’t themselves, it’s that their whole sense of self was broken into tiny shards, all floating in their dark vacuum-like minds. And the shards were blind, they couldn’t see the other shards. They could only hear them, screeching, yearning. They wanted desperately to be able to go, to go and comfort the other shards, but they couldn’t. Because they were just as lost too.
By Alejandra URL on 11.08.2012
Everybody tries. They try their whole life to be selfless, to remain attached to the rest of the world out there. But really everyone is engulfed in a cocoon of their selfish ways. Never losing sight of themselves.
By Emily on 11.08.2012
They stayed to themselves because themselves breathed quieter when they were all together and saying nothing but keeping it all inside and i know that may not make sense to you but it does to me
Do you believe in anything anymore?
Only myself. People should believe in themselves.
By Lola J on 11.08.2012
people always think about themselves. Just like Mr. Cole says, people are always listening to the radio station “WIFM”: What’s in it for me. People should learn to look and think outside of themselves as well as inside. Our thoughts and beliefs motivate and change us. We direct ourselves. As such, if we can lead ourselves we can lead others. All of this can come about from people thinking about themselves and others. You are just as important as those around you and everyone else living in this world. We are all people of flesh, blood, and bone. We have thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and perceptions. If we stop for a moment and better understand ourselves, we can better understand others. In doing this we can help others as well as ourselves and people can learn more easily to help themselves. The notion is simple. It works. It helps.

I feel inconsistent. It’s always them, and me. And I guess I’ve always counted that as a bad thing, but maybe it’s not. After all, the road to greatness is narrow, traveled by few, and often walked alone. Either way, it is well with my soul.

they stare in the mirror
fix there hair
Hair as big as the space in their heads.
Space that should be filled with theorems and verses
not gossip and talk of others.

Their failure to achieve that imagined ideal self version would always cause them to shun themselves, or at least their true selves.
Dissatisfaction eats them.

They talk about themselves a lot. Over there, sitting on the benches, in their own little word. But it’s a world I want to be a part of.
Their tight huddle bars me from entering, as they look into themselves. Talk among themselves.
