You are a wild entity that I must tame
You can bring glory, you can bring shame.
A tightrope of the most delicate kind
You and humility must be intertwined.
On my quest for success and perfection
You are adept at changing perceptions
You change reality to your liking
Until we are both perceived as trifling.
Eckhart Tolle says you are not me
Yet just a filter through which I see
To give in to you is to lose my soul
To lose my essence, to lose all hope.
I seek to be free and soar like an eagle
And say farewell to you, my forsaken ego.
