So Too Do I - Poem by Francis Duggan

You do have a big ego but having said that so too do I
And that most human beings are egotistical of that why should one lie
To the ego we are bonded it is our lifetime tie
Yet we are only mortal since we are born to die
For success with each other we always do compete
And those with over-inflated egos suffer of self conceit
And it does seem in the Human World that winning is the most important thing
Of the praises of the loser you will not hear many sing,
Since the ego is our sense of self some credit it is due
'Tis said we need it for our survival and this may well be true
But too much ego not a good thing as it blocks humility from the mind
Amongst the over egotistical great arrogance you will find
And though you do have a big ego your type not even rare
And that I too am egotistical I am all too aware.
