Ego makes me strong
It helps me to fight back,
But leaves me feeling ashamed
Of the way that I react.
It tells me I’m right and I’m deserving,
But leaves me looking foolish
And leaves no room for compassion
For those who most need it
Those who don’t deserve it.
Ego makes everything about me
It feels like my best friend,
But I think it may be my worst enemy.
It blocks me from my truest desire,
To be the change that I want to see.
The dream I have for this world…
To be love.
