Unmasked

Self-centered? Of course I am.

I always look to grow.

 

I am not selfless.

I am self-aware.

 

I am not  doing it just for you.

I am doing it for me too.

 

I am not expecting anything in return. Simply being kind to you

Renders my soul more beautiful. I am happy to help. 

 

In doing so, I am thinking of me too.

The sweeter I am the better I feel.

 

So really, there is no need to thank me.

Thank you for making me feel useful.

 

This is kindness beyond face-value – sweetness empowerment.

Weakness should not be assumed, where strength is required.

    Empowered sweetness, now that’s a fine thought! I guess a selfless good deed does not exist, there is always an intrinsic pleasure involved. I love this, your lines are real simple and subtle and at the same time they are immensely empowering. Great post Rock 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 yes I believe you always take pleasure in doing good! It is rewarding to be a sweet person. I have been told so many times that being sweet meant being taken for a fool or being weak. I believe it is the opposite. Whenever you do something for others you get stronger and your reflection in the mirror gets brighter.
