Ego

"Emily Stern: Many Faces" Sulai Lopez 2009

My ego you have crafted
Hand carved
With weavings so delicate and perfect
Written With a pen so fine
Of infinite moments in time

Mixed with tinted temperment
Painted with the science
Of astrology, chronology
And biology
So perfect is each moment
That I can only bless myself
As your chariot
A container of dreams
And cosmic science experiments
Loving you
Wishing for you
As only “I” can.

    in their hearts they know their truest nature, in their hearts there is a song
    and the hawk and the raven learn

    doesn’t get why... read on
