    MOST OF U WHOM ARE REAL WILL
    FEEL THIS DROP U SEE. FOR ME TO
    EXERCISE A DEMON IN ME I MUST
    ADIMIT IT IS AN ENEMY. MY ENEMY IS
    MY EGO AND IT IS KILLING ME. MY EGO MAKES
    ME CHASE WANT LIKE EVERTYHING I SEE.
    MAKES ME LIE AND SAY THINGS I SHOULD NOT SAY
    SOMETIMES IS OUT OF MEMORY.MY EGO IS KICKING MY
    BEHIND GOT LUSTFUL IMAGES RUNNING THROUGH MY MIND.
    MY EGO GOT ME YELLING AT MY KIDS MY EGO GOT ME LOOKING
    DOWN ON FOLKS THAT DONT KNOW HOW TO LIVE.
    WE JUST PLAYING WITH ALL SELVES STUCK IN THIS GAME
    BUT THE EGO IS THE ONE HOLDING DOWN THE FRAME.

    look the other way my brother
    there is another path

    when you feel you are misled
    all you have to do is laugh

    ha ha ha

    we have come this far
    look inside i guarantee you'll find your shining star

    we don't die we multiply....

    You have pinpointed a negative that many won't admit to even being there. In writing this piece, I think you've gained so much control, control that was always there. ^5

    That's real!! Oftentimes, the ego gets the better of us thus we function from a place of arrogance, envy, lonliness, separation, independent, despair, and all the other negative attributes we falsely assign to our characters. When we learn to tame the riding beast (ego) we can begin to see our true selves in Truth, Peace, Love, Eternal, United, Divine and all the positive aspects of who we truly are. I have much work to continue and I'm right with you!!

    Peace, Love, Light embrace U & yours...

    self-reflection

    i admire those that can look within and see what they want to change in themselves first! Growth ain't always easy but it's always the best thing for us.
