Alter Ego

There sits on my shoulder is a small man Looking like he’s my real alter ego Surely seeming not to ever let go Telling me of things to do, what I can Sometimes he tells me to run, then I ran I have little to hold, little to show With him I can’t do what I surely know He keeps me from joy, and with life he bans Little fearful being which he creates Making me do things I don’t want to do Never does he go and alleviate He posts deep hatred into what is new Painful pieces of life he wallows in I wish he was gone, and would take a spin

    yes, I remember this little man from my psychology classes. Clever way to write of him, Russell, in an Italian sonnet!
