What If We Set Our Egos Free?

Updated on April 11, 2013

What if we set our egos free?

And you stopped trying so hard to love me

And I stopped trying so hard to love you

And we both stopped trying to love ourselves

And instead we focused

On loving the world together

What if we stopped trying to be interesting to each other?

And instead we focused

On going interesting places

And watching interesting films

And having interesting adventures

Side by side

What if we stopped trying to be beautiful?

And instead we focused

On enjoying the beauty of nature

In places that make us forget ourselves

And listening to beautiful music

As we dance together under the sky

What if we worried less about being replaceable?

And focused more on making

Irreplaceable memories

What if we set our egos free?

      I really like your poem. Thank you. Being a confessed egotist, I agree with your thoughts. Yet it was the mob's will that I remain this lovable egotist.

      Perfect. No point in trying anything. Just allow these things to occur naturally, and other things will soon follow.

      Ego.....Humility....the two ends of the spectrum. My serenity is proportional to where I am on that spectrum. Beautifully stated by you my dear; lovely work.
