Altruist Vanities

a poem by Vinay Virwani

Standing out
Looking in
I find
There is nothin’

Stepping in
Looking out
I can see
The moving crowd

The crowd
A part of me
The self
Devoid of me

Distant from the self
One with the crowd
Making myself
Falsely proud

Standing out
Looking in
Slowly I become
A part of nothin’
