I expect narcissists never fall into the
Rabbit hole called
When you become trapped in a maze of
That's too beautiful to want to
And go home


I expect that narcissism is like always believing in the
Certainty of your own
Lead role
Instead of realizing that in the movie production
Called life,
You're only an extra sipping coffee on the
Of someone else's soap opera

The author's comments:
Sonder (n) - the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries, and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you'll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk
