The Parasite The Ego

For so long

Living inside of me



Fooled me into

Thinking

It became me



But it was not living Only survived


It had no life

It was not life

Contained no light

A parasite

A virus

Needing the host

To survive


Making the

Mind

Body

Sould

And Spirit


Stagnant


Limiting the mobility

And progress of the

Individual

The true being

And with the stagnation

It could set hold and breed

To spread its kind to those

Around me


But not for long

For finally my eyes

Ultimately open

Laid sight on thee


And the sight burned it

In the smoldering fire

The brightest light

In the Universe

The light bursting forth

From the man

Who dares to see


No parasite

No darkness

No ego

Can dare to be


And its demise

Not so glorious

To what proceeds


So magnificent

So pure

So beautiful

So undeniably


Real

Powerful

And after all these years

I can finally say


I am truly me
