The most enlightened thing I ever learned
was how little people think
of things outside of what they earn
or those with whom they have no link.
Curiously, we all seem to believe
that people think of us all the time,
our actions make them smile or grieve-
we feel we linger in their minds.
The truth is that we have no spotlight.
Others only care about themselves
and only look for ego’s delight
or when your life makes theirs unwell.
So all I wonder nowadays
is what to do behind the scenes
or what I’m capable of in my ways
with them consumed in their own dreams.
For the possibilities are endless see,
if you avoid touching people’s lives.
You could simply do your deeds quietly
and none would ever spot your lies.
