The Finest of Distinctions

What is it to be selfish?

What is it that distinguishes,

Selfishness from necessary self-care?

How does one know

When it is more valuable

To stop fighting a battle

Where there are only losses to be had if fighting rages on?

How do we know, if the pain of a loss

Will clear the hazy battlefield of mind,

Or simple crush the surviving fighter?

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
