EGO's

At times in life when I've struggled along,
I've surveyed hinder at measures taken.
And because in my being I claimed no song,
Fright oft prevailed leaving me shaken.

Life approached me like a breath of wind,
With distressed days that slowly scattered.
Like a tender sapling I soon learned to bend,
While ignoring God and things that mattered.

God placed within me a desire to succeed,
And within my heart a lesser ego delves.
He grants us no space for malice or greed,
We've no room for God while full of ourselves.
