When Folk Relate

When Folk Relate

Sometimes I feel like giving up
On all this ego stuff
This writing just so folk will love
My words. I’ve had enough
For ego is a foolish thing
And makes the spirit dull
When ego takes a holiday
Each moment feels more whole

It’s then I think of moving on
Just writing for myself
For when there are no expectations
The poems have more wealth
But then somebody comes on through
Who, can really understand
The wisdom that my words contain
This makes me feel so grand.

I don’t want no, accolades
I just want to get on through
To those ones who can relate
And feel the way that I do
Cause then I can inspire them
As they inspire me
Then we can search this life together
And feel life’s mystery
