"A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle."
~ Ben Franklin ~

When my ego wants to act out, I find myself at its mercy. 
It whips me about mentally and emotionally like I'm a fish on a line, 
and I don't like it. 
I resist and try to force it away with angst and willpower. 
But meeting power with power this way results in a tug of war. 

Relief comes only when I am able to stand back and detach.

I watch with curiosity as my ego seeks to tie me up in knots.
