Lessons of the Ego. A Sonnet , by Manatita
The Flames of Ego
Wisdom ne’er did I discern, having tran-si-to-ry fun;
My Spirit burned.
Played an everlasting game; entered world of Name and Fame.
Alas! Now I am not the same,
Made my name; yet scorching as a flame.
Ego now my only Friend, too busy with what fame did send;
Stabbing others with my pen.
Lives a solemn life of fear; lost like sheep inside a lair.
Yet the Players hold my Soul - a scored ‘own goal’.
Awake at last I see the Light; despondency has lost its might,
‘Tis inner Light; the things within,
I need to keep me safe; pristine.
O Pride, Dark Lord, and vain Supreme,
This peace within, my only dream.
