“Why, Whyy, Whyyy! Me, Me, Me!!!! ”
You know the infamous,
Adults are not exempt.
When your plans don’t work out like you envisioned,
You may sulk; become angry; shed real or crocodile tears...
When someone is honest with you,
And you don’t like what they have to say;
You may avoid them, lose confidence, or become defensive
When you want your partner,
to be there for you always;
Ignoring the fact that they too have lives;
for which you fell in love with them in the first place.
When seconds, minutes, hours
Become a chore…
An internal battle.
Do not despair,
get back in the driver’s seat.
Because it is the EgO...
That pulls tantrums;
The stories you have been telling the world,
often painful events about the past,
now, without such stories,
the EgO is not the centre of the world.
seizes to exist.
A living being that does not belong within,
Telling you the LIE that disidentifying with it;
Is the death of you.
When in fact, this death
Is the rebirth of you.
