Narcissists typically are preoccupied
With themselves to excess. They need admiration.
They may seem to be confident, but it’s an act
That’s put on in order to cover up the fact
That they’re unstable and insecure. Creation
Of a powerful image keeps them satisfied.
Narcissism, known as a personality
Disorder, is characterized by excessive
Self-absorption, self-centeredness, and vanity.
There can be a deep hatred for authority.
Lack of empathy means they’re unable to give
True support to another emotionally.
Narcissistic pride is the very foundation
And core of the ego itself. Its animal
Nature is something that all humanity shares.
It’s not unusual to find someone who cares
For humanity and its joyous survival.
Narcissism is its own justification.
Narcissism is typical of the lower
Levels of consciousness. The major illusion
Is that one is separate from all existence.
One can’t silence the ego at its own expense,
But one can mitigate sorrow and confusion
By knowing that it’s all part of human nature.
