Ego vs. Soul

Somewhere inside
Two reside
One is kind
To judgement, blind
Ready to love
With help from above
The other is scared
Connection impaired
Acting for self
Peace placed on the shelf
I tell them apart
By the change of heart
The struggle inside
Sends one to hide
The one too loud
Is the one most proud
Demanding and crazed
By rationality unphased
It holds me down
And hangs around
It keeps soul away
And continues to play
"I don't need you," it says
"Because I am the best"
But I know it's not true
And I know what to do
I have to help soul
To love is the goal
Ego must die
For soul to fly.
