The ego is against
— More or less — everything.
Opposing the world,
To pose as a victim,
On a quest for revenge
Or re-screening events
To pass off as a hero
Saving the day,
The recipient of everyone’s admiration
Spending all its energy to fuel
the reasons for asking
time and time again :
‘Who on earth does the whole earth think it is do be doing this to me ?’
In one form or another.
Once a full range of experiences has been reviewed in such a way
And not a soul remains to fight up against,
This unquenchable thirst for battle
Ends up in the ego coming after itself.
‘This is all because of me if this and that is happening….
Thus have I completed yet another full cycle of victim-to-hero-to-victim again.
But ‘this too shall pass’,
matters don’t last,
Neither do minds
Let alone thoughts.
Rest in the place of contemplation
Watching the deviant game of life
Behind our all-knowing smile.
And defuse oppositions
Agreeing to whatever
Enemy in disguise shows up.
For underneath the fierce and savage rage aiming at us,
Lies a friend with a hand,
Helping along the way.
