Ego

Ego gets in the way of one's life,
a big and bold part of us cuts like a knife.
Ego can cause much pain~strife,
it can worsen ones life.
It needs to be tamed,
tamed like a roaring lion~I proclaimed.
Put it in it's place,
then everyday ask for grace.
Live life to the fullest embrace,
by putting ego in a box or a case.

You are so right. Ego out of control is a curse. Needs taming! Peace, Gershon
