“Me me me” my vocals warm up
I take to my stage head held high
My audience is there to adore me
I am all that matters
My performance replaces truth
Superficial and materialistic
Don’t question me
Accept what I present
Fragile in my spotlight
I need you to play along
I am the star of my fantastical reality
And you are my adoring fans.
I am currently reading ‘The Life of I’ by Anne Manne.
If you are wondering about how the world became so narcissistic, Anne Manne explains it. Capitalism and devaluation of care play a role. It is a disturbing, insightful and necessary read.
