Sharp Knife of the Ego

knife-1088529_1280

If I go about my days
using my ego as a sharp knife
to cleave myself free
from all things and people
different, unpleasant,
and uncomfortable,
the road to fullness of life
may disintegrate into
a rock-strewn path marked only
by disappointment and distrust.
