Ego

Ego

A Poem by Arrinae

Always so dramatic,

Spreading needless rumors.

This need you have is harmful,

And spreads like a tumor.

 

We are supposed to be a team,

This isn't a contest for recognition.

And yet your ego has inflated,

What a horrid condition.

 

Trying to claw yourself higher,

You constantly pull us down.

You don't seem to understand,

All you want is the crown.

 

The strike to your pride will hurt,

When the hammer strikes it true.

Don't blame anyone at all,

Your ego was far too huge.

 

We're supposed to be family,

We're all in the same boat here.

Take off the prideful shades,

And stand amongst your peers.

True words. Ego kills all the relations. This is so wonderfully done, with an almost flawless rhyme scheme. Loved it!

No problem
We're supposed to be family,
We're all in the same boat here.
Take off the prideful shades,
And stand amongst your peers.

Self-centered people only think about themselves and don't care how their acts damage others. Wonderful write.

I agree and you're most welcome
I'm probably way off topic but this one reminded me of being in a "partnership" where instead of caring about how the other feels, the egotist in the poem would rather feel the need to defend themselves or draw attention by making themselves the victim in every situation.
