"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.
