    There is no reason to like what causes such pain.
    Constantly struggling for personal gain and pleasure.
    Selfishness.
    I'm no different.
    Anyone who claims to be is fooling themselves.
    Satisfaction achieved by self gratification.
    Self destruction interuppted by praise.
    False praise.
    Built by the guilty conscience of those who think they're better than me.
    Prosthetic smiles are as painful as the hidden thoughts that back them.
    There words, hateful words, are never spoken, which hurts all the more.
    Look at them.
    They pretend to know me, understand me, and still love me.
    How can they?
    I don't know me and yet i still don't like me.
    She knows me more than i know my self.
    It's so terrifying to let her in.
    Oh well one day I'll know.

    My observations with reservations!

    If there is any hatred of self, it is because we have not met the divine in us, which dwells within all of us. If we don't know our
    selves, then truly it is hard to define ourselves to others. When we learn to love ourselves and others as we are meant to,divinly so we see pass the faults and fill the needs. Understanding is the best thing in the world. But confusion is the road to destruction.
    Finding yourself is your life goal and purpose and you are at one
    of the stations in life it is not a place it is a state of mind. Which state does ya mind reside in. Mine dwells in the secret places of the most high! So I raise my voice for "In the knowing is the growing!"
