a CONTEMPORARY conclusion

The contemporary ego
feeding the ego.

My right to be free
my right to be me,
fundamental and liberal
no value ,no moral;
Hey listen to me-
just let me be.

The contemporary credo
feeding the ego.

Don't ask me to see
contribute or give,
hey,live and let live
don't inhibit me;
Or my right to be free
my right to be me.

Ever looking within,
the self-centred sin;
The contemporary credo
massage my ego.

Good flow & strongly stated. Not sure if ego is contemporary. I've witnessed selfish, callous behavior from overly-conservative people of all ages who like to give to charitable institutions --so long as their name was put on a plaque for all to see...another form of ego. The last generation & every one preceding it had egoists, narcissists, those who abused class systems, racial injustice and male domination. I never see sin as generational. That being said, I like your poem.
