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.

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