Taming the Ego {poem}

March 26, 2019

















Taming the ego
can be a perilous task,
But a necessary one
If I want to unmask
The truth deep within me
from the rules and the lies,
The beliefs I’ve bought into
that just cover my eyes.
Keep my head in the sand,
And keep me from going
Into the truth of the matter,
Into my inner knowing.


Taming the ego
Is a delicate dance
Of hearing my “shoulds”,
Gently pushing my “cant’s”,
Softly expanding my limits.
Stretch myself to the edges
By dismantling beliefs
And a lifetime of pledges.
I hear my self-talk.
Don’t feed into the drama.
Ramp up my self-care;
Heal layers of old trauma.


If I move too abrasively
My ego could get flared,
Off on a fear tangent
‘Til I’m frozen and scared.
So I feel my emotions
Then follow the clues,
Catch myself mesmerized
By the ego’s “old news”.
I notice my triggers
Then trace back to the source.
Unravel the bullshit
To free my true force.


Taming the ego
Is an absolute must,
If I choose to embody
My soul’s purpose and trust.
So I must get to know
This part of myself,
If I hope to breathe life
Into the dreams on my shelf.
I must nurture my ego,
Help it feel safe and warm.
While stretching my limits,
That’s how I’ll transform.
