Drop The Self-Importance


Self-awareness is the product of ego,
That demands attention and acceptance
And feels importance and self-worth as well.
It earns us no food, no money, no kinds.
Yet relentless efforts and money are put
To earn no gain, physical or material.
In case it fails, dissatisfaction will mount.
Self-awareness dissolved, much worries drop,
