What is identity without ego? Is it bad to seek a better life? Aren’t all of us striving for comfort? What’s wrong with some harmless lies? Should we be judged if we choose our own benefit? If so, why? Aren’t all of us the same when it comes to desire?
Let me tell you something
Can’t say if this is a confession
Don’t believe in heaven or hell either
All I wanted is my happiness
And to live as long as I can
“Who doesn’t?”, Echoes a voice
If there is someone to blame
Then it’s this voice inside my head
Deviously inciting and tricking me
I have to admit I am selfish
Putting me above everything else
But isn’t everyone the same?
Rings my inner voice with wisdom
I nurture my ego every day
And deny it at the same time
What’s my identity without my ego?
Nods my inner voice in agreement
My ambitions border on greed
In craving for money and success
What’s bad in the desire for a better life?
Demands my inner voice in anger
I envy all those undeserving people
And curse my rotten luck for it
Of course, life has not been fair to me
Rues my inner voice in resentment
My anger often boils over as rage
And hurt the people around me
But I deserve to vent out my emotions
Comforts my inner voice in solidarity
I get dishonest in some situations
To wriggle my way out of problems
What’s wrong with some harmless lies?
Asserts my inner voice in conviction
I know what you are thinking
Come on now, don’t start judging me
It’s not like I committed a grave crime,
Haven’t robbed a bank or killed people
Don’t deserve any trial for my actions.
It is just me, my desires and my flaws
I am imperfect and I love the way I am
Let’s pretend I never told you anything
And we will start all over again!
