Me and My Ego

July 5, 2019 life

I often wonder
if I have freed myself
from my own ego,
but that is just my ego,
worrying about itself.

It worries a lot,
about my shortcomings,
and if I’m “doing it right”,
trying to remodel itself
into something new and improved,
yet always reluctant
to release its grip
on how I see the world.

It is a snake of thought
eating its own tail,
in a loop to nowhere,
maintaining its power
for as long as I feed it
with my attention and concern.
