The Enemy!

Ego does have neither mind
nor does have a heart,
but in ruling human life,
it really plays its part
It dies when it needs to live
It lives when it needs to die
Or at least just fall unconscious…

Ego has the rebel rules
A higher sense of dignity
Got from its own angle
Its own realization…
When it dies, it turns
an honored heart
Into a humble beggar
begging humbly
for attention and affection…

Ego is like a silent killer
As pulse, sugar, cholesterol
Fatal in both severe shades
Getting high or getting nil…
Ego is a sensitive, though
Not a sensible agency
Running, ruling, ruining
But never relieving human life…

It is like a central jail
guilty or the harmless souls
Fall prisoners in its confines…
To keep an eye on your “self”
Is the only remedy
Self-respect is another thing
Ego is just the enemy! ! !

    Ego is selfish and driven by a need for constant praise, a wonderful poem so beautifully written!

    ego can get the best of people when it gets out of control. it can be the enemy of the soul.

    Ego has no mind no heart, has rebel rules, is a silent killer, and in short is the enemy. Beautifully expressed in the poem. Keep away from ego. Thank you.

    Sis while I was reading Allama Iqbal came and said lo! your Shahzia how rightly said ego which I worked Khudi ko kar...ego is good and bad we must discad the bad and adhere the good one best work need to be written on this topic and also we should not forget character we are at the ruin door of humanity and Ellias has said that Valsa also added tenterhooks of ego! Ramesh Rai rightly said ego. a good subject with Ego and Geetha Jayakumar, just a three letter word, enough to kill one with thoughts.supportive explanation But ego is the instinct of human kind it is both evil and holy

    Ego, pride, all will ruin real friendships, they will make friends separate
    they do the worst...
    well written.
