Crush Your Ego ! ! ! ! ! ! ! - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Like a serpent it will crawl on you
By the time you realize
it will creep in a zick- zack route
Those who love somebody, hates them later

All lies, hatred, jealousy, vanity
Are highly poisonous and disastrous

Mind is the workshop,
Of self destructive weapons
Like a snake you will pamper
And will hide out from public your true nature.

Each and every human keep as much secrets as possible
Most people seems to be humble and harmless
But when they come to do business
They turn out to be poisonous.

Catching the cobra in people is not an easy job
Same way to catch and control the human ego,
Is the most difficult mission to accomplish?
The ego is continuously tempting people
to use some or other poisonous weapon

Sometimes for simple pleasure,
Sometimes for selfish motives.
But the result is same
And their ego inflates by knowledge

Virtues are like firewall that protect us from evils
Live this life with simplicity without nurturing evils.
