Thoughts on ego and all the silliness that goes with it when taken seriously


Revelation

What an act of liberation
To laugh at my life's repetition
Of the same old explanation
Of why my

Pomposity

Was visible to all the world
But not to me

As I become aware
Of the gift of

Humility

I finally see with clarity
The sad loss of spontaneity
occasioned by structured rigidity

Of self

Brought on by belief in

Superiority

We are such loving clown's of nature
Simple and joyous when unguarded
Why waste a life constructing costumes
we think, when worn will show our power
To all we sense are not our equal
When all this acting jails our loving
Of those who already know our folly
Such silly disregard of who we truly are
Sadly keeps us from our simple selves!

Time is not forgiving
Nor is it a constant
Hurtful history is fast to fade
When having finally found
The key to life well spent is
honest loving of myself
Celebrating the joke I am
And in peace believe in

Simplicity

I cherish the high playfulness of the multiple rhymes on "liberation" and "humility"!

And I may take your poem as a writing prompt! that is, I may venture something of my own on the same theme!

peace and light, as always
