selfish and foolish

i'm no suicide
too much of a narcissist
for such an ugly way to go
just let my skin wrinkle
so that by the time I realize
my body is worthless
my mind will be worth the time
and attention
and care
of children and grandchildren
that will believe I am wise
and experienced
even if I've been foolish
for as long as I can remember.
