(Trying to Avoid) Narcissism (Poem and Philosocom's Subcategory on Narcissism)

Updated: Apr 30



(The Subcategory's Directory:


Back in the late 10's,

I won a very important reward.

I'm a top writer,

So don't think I'm senile, or a retard.


I don't know if I'll manage that to duplicate,

But as long as I live, I guess I can just relate!

I will try my best to make the world understand,

That my writings, are relevant,

And irrelevancy, itself, is irrelevant.

Back in the early 10's,

I met a very important, person.

I'm a philosopher,

So don't think it's a game, of poker.


I don't know if I'll manage to follow his example,

I will try my best to make the world understand,

That my writings, are relevant,

And irrelevancy, itself, is irrelevant.


Back, in the middle 10's,

This isn't just for show!

I'm a good writer,

So don't act like you, don't know.

Hundreds sent their applications, but they got rejected.

Do you see now, that I'm, for you, a good asset?

So I will try my best to make the world understand,

That my writings, are relevant,

And irrelevancy, itself, is irrelevant.


But back in 2018,

I'm not lazy,

I'm not lazy at all,

Every morning I might wake up so tired.

But at least I can say, that, I have still tried!

And as long as I'll try, I'll attempt to make you understand,

That my work, is not that worthless;


When the time will come,

So much funding, on advertisements,

Will the world still forget me, after my season?

It is every flower's turn to begin to bloom,

But that also start, their path, leading to their doom!

At least if I try I might die gladfully,

Because even if I won't, succeed,

I'm no narcissist,

Contrary to what some of you, might think.

I just want to contribute,

In the best way I can,

Do you see what it requires, man?

Recognition, hard work, and a reputation that's quite nice,

It's only then when my legacy will, fully rise.

I hope now that you can truly see this truth:

That this is a means, to help's end,

Empires are built on stern hands.
