The Tyranny of the Ego Exposed

I rewrote this poem thinking about how hardheaded humans can be; how we lose so much trying to save our ego. I wish I could say that it was just other people, but I know that I am subject to the insanity myself.

 

I crown myself the ultimate authority

Of all that is and all that should be

Resolutely ignoring where I may be wrong

I align with the weak and hate the strong

I’ll scoff at wisdom that pounds at my door

So shall it be…forevermore

I’ve chosen insanity for the sake of Me

Shamelessly shunning responsibility

For losing my head because I’m bound

Whatever the cost, to keep my crown
