"True merit, like a river, the deeper it is, the less noise it makes."
~ Edward Frederick Halifax ~

The ego finds plenty to complain about
And all kinds of ways to compare
And feel scared.

The ego trips us up
And creates stories
And worry.

The ego is surround sound loud
And hard to pin down
And full of frowning misery. 

It rules the day
Until we say

And become quiet,
And breathe,
And remember who we really are.

Surface noise is just that.
