Once I thought I knew myself well
and knew the inside image of me.
My mind was pretty clear then and
was well-defined and I liked myself.

Now I don't think I like myself.
I know I'm not what I thought to be.
I'm just a selfish person myself;
I am not really proud of myself.

I do believe in being unselfish
but I found that it is very hard.
I know when my weakness has won
and has made me selfish sometimes.  

I believe in unconditional love
without any expectations and yet
found out that deep within me was
a hidden expectation of being loved.

I said I expect nothing in return
and I was unselfish but I didn't
know my true self and I expected
to be loved in return for my love.

Now I know the facts about myself.
I expected a lot from the love and
was fooling myself that I was unselfish.
I am trying to improve myself but
I know I can't fool myself any more.
