Selfish Me

If we play under the world’s rule
In death we will be found a fool
To captivate an audience on Earth
Amass wealth of immeasurable worth
Should we excel in athleticism
Or write literary criticism
Discover a new invention
May it be with purest intention
For what we sacrifice in selfish gain
In this world or the next will bring pain.
