Ego

It was never huge nor was it small

It was somewhere in between.


It didn’t have much weight if it

Were a ship it would surly sink.


It wasn’t a true reflection of what a

Noble king should be it could have

Easily been stuffed into the

Smallest box.


Then you came along and started

Building up the parts that were weak

It slowly became strong enough.


I now see I am too much for anyone

To handle or touch I once was

Humble never saying much all because

I was concerned for what others would

Think if I were to step out of place.


However, when you stroked my ego you

Forever changed me now there is nothing

I won’t try yes even walking away from the

Dark lies just to live in the truthful light and

To think I grew so much inside all because

Of you.


The boost you gave to my unstable ego

Has shown me that you’re just enough for me

I was lost before you came to show me all that

I was missing plus all that I could be.


You made me braver, than I was before you

Helped me regain control of my own destiny

Now this may not be a big deal to you but

It is enormous to me.


How the love of a woman could simply raise

My own ego, now it is a huge ship well

Worthy of sailing across any of life’s seas.


I am willing to take on anything that anyone

Tells me that I can’t do all because of you and

The boost you gave to my once weakened ego.
