Thursday Thoughts: Ego

I did a post last week on bullying: The Bullying Battle. There are so many reasons for the way people act the way we do; all behavior serves a purpose. I wrote a series of poems about ego, and I thought that I would share one with you.

Ego (Part II)

 An ego is a big cat
 That needs to be stroked
 By you or someone else
 Smaller cats are easy to please
 And the bigger the cat
 The more dangerous it is
 To rub the wrong way 

Sometimes egos are beneficial for people to have the fortitude to forge ahead with their dreams, but in some cases, it can be detrimental. Egos can make someone look like a big jerk, or just confident.

How do you want to be remembered?

I am an author, composer, and an artist. I published my first book of poetry: Lines by Leon – Poems, Prose, and Pictures in January 2020 and a book of original classical guitar compositions. My latest book is a short story compilation of science fiction/post-apocalyptic tales called, The Knot at the End of the Rope and Other Short Stories.
