Arash’s “The Selfish Belt” Monologue


Yeah, we’ve all heard it, My little KATOLIK belt.

How great you are for helping out that disabled boy.

Give it a rest. Honestly, I don’t think you’re doing it for him; you’re doing it for yourself.

You must feel such a thrill, having him watch you like you’re some kind of savior.

I’d guess you like to feel that way; some kind of all holy, selfless being.

But in my opinion, you’re the most selfish person I know you mother fucker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You walk around thinking you are a one of a kind, holy mastermind.

Plenty of people volunteer, and the good ones, the really good ones don’t yak on and on about it. You like to believe that people think you’re a little miss pink perfect cake pop doll lady,

but you’re not that. Hard to hear ain’t it. That you mean far less than little to someone, someone who doesn’t kiss the earth below you. He doesn’t need you. You could die today and he’d still breathe the same, suffer the same. You aren’t his medication, so stop acting like some prized jewel that can’t shatter to the ground. Test me one more time Katolik belt.

You’ll see, one day, you’ll be nothing more than another grain of sand in the ocean of nobodies.
