Ego - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

I need to lose my ego
It carries me away
To places I don't want to be
And stresses out my day

I need to lose my ego
It forges way ahead
Evoking anger, stirring hurt
My ego's easily lead

I need to halt my ego
It feeds on grief and pain
Only when it's truly starved
Will I feel at ease again

    Perfect diction and rhythm, great poem concerning our egos! They tend to get in the way, trying to outdo others and wrecking havoc in our lives. Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report)Reply

    amazing poem...impressive
    it is so well rhymed...simple and it has a mega message.

    not many poems i read today have one component right. but, as a non native english speaker i shy at talking too much.. lest i reflect my own ignorance

    blessings
    very nice
