Ego


His voice cracks in the thunder’s peal
My ego failed me in life’s each deal
Never did see what the other saw
Too blind to notice my own flaw!

In the candlelight his face wears a gloom
Two tremulous shadows darken the room
Forever I felt the world is for me
My viewpoints matter only!

Like a deluge pours the thunderous rain
In deafening din rattling windowpane
Focused only me only tried to get
Grope in void now when egos abate!

Flickers a grave loss in his dulled eyes
Unshackled from self its obdurate disguise
Over the ruins of ego is born in me the belief
The reward is not in the getting but lies in all our give!

    A very lifting thought.... When ego is annihilated, we come to realize that joy and reward lies not in getting but in giving....! Beautiful diction! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
