'Ego' - Poem by Kelly Seale

My words this time, are from the hip,
Emotions felt, my ego stripped.
Realizing now, the pain I've caused, the heart's I've broke,
Are serious and real, not some joke.
It was never a game, yet I still played,
Now, the consequences must be faced for the mistake I made.
Forgiveness I ask, for the human stain,
Rebuilding the trust...
Only time will tell, for healing heart's sake,
I must refrain.
A man needs to know his limitations, keeping his priorities straight,
Especially when others heart's are at stake.
And the heart's I've broken, the relationship's wrecked...
Of those dear to me,
Are all because I was too blind to see.
And because I was not man enough to keep my ego
In check.

    Thank you Vanessa, You are the first to comment on this write, and evry time someone makes a comment on any of the, I re-read that in which was written, to better inhale the words of others, their points of view and thoughts- it is so important to me. I treasure your review and am glad this one touched you so. It was very hard to write, for being honest with ones self, peeling away the layers so to speak- is not an easy task to do. Thank you Vanessa! ! !
    -Kelly.
