The Ego is the Armor of Pride

The ego is the armor of pride,

The greatest fiction ever told:

That we exist as an exaggerated image for the sole purpose of

Believing that God created us to make itself feel important,

That we are what is important about life,

That our planet, our nation, our family, in fact

That I am somehow, in the grand scheme of the Universe,

Important.

Yet,

As a parent to a child, to that child,

We are indeed super important.

Life’s balance between humility and responsibility necessitates that

The ego is seen in proper perspective.

The ego is best washed away in the next flood.
