image

My Lord tells me
That He will burst with
Joy and Pride
The day I become
totally empty of ego.

God, do You really love me?
If so, right now,
Do deliver a crushing blow
To my ego-mind.

My ego needs.
My soul has.
My ego tries.
My soul does.

My ego knows the problem that is.
My soul becomes the answer that is.

Ego-gratification is always an unprofitable business
