First Person

                   Instinctively, the first person one thinks of,

                   The first person one is concerned about.

                   The first person one recognizes.

                   It is in human nature to be selfish and self-centered.

                   How else could our species have survived

                   But by all looking out for one human only-

                   Oneself? Others always come second.

                   This instinct is shared by all humans in our core,

                   And so is applied to one person by others.

                   This is not widely understood nor accepted.

                   "Only I truly love me."

                   "Only I am worthy of my complete, unwavering trust."

                   "Only I will care for and protect me."

                   "Only I will not betray me."


                   So it is that we are all truly alone

                   In heart,

                   In mind,

                   In body.



Second Person

                   As the first person perspective

                   Is subconscious, beneath our understanding,

                   The second person is a decision

                   But still as primal as breathing.

                   The second person one cares for

                   The other whom one keeps near

                   And whom one speaks to,

                   Unafraid,

                   Face-to-face.

                   One confides in the second person,

                   A self outside of self

                   The only other one speaks to.

                   "You.

                   You.

                   You."


                   And so while we are all alone,

                   We are not lonely.



Third Person

                   The third person is distant from oneself

                   Far from the heart and the body

                   So that one must address them

                   As if they are not present

                   Or even nonexistent

                   The third person is an outsider

                   That one does not wish to speak to

                   Only of

                   "He, she, they"

                   And so, while we are not lonely,

                   They are.
