EGO




EGO

Inside us
is a range of volcanoes
where anger often erupts
and hatred-lava flows.

Inside us
are many an octopus.
Dwelling in a sea of greed
come what prey it sucks.

Inside us
is a forest of delusions.
So dense and dark it is
that there shines not a ray of reason.
We are burnt, drowned and darkened.

Why so?
It's ''Ego'' the master of deception
tying us to the yoke of
anger, greed and illusion.
