Introspect

Wandering through my sleeping mind I found a draconian lair,
selfishness was the only thing I found to be hiding there.

Morbidly fascinated, I stepped inside the room,
and found a mirror on every wall with the power to consume.

Every good and thoughtful thing I thought I’d ever done,
was a battle for my motives, and selfishness had won.
