Letting Go

When people learn to let go of ego
Then there is nothing left..

Nothing left to be cursed

Nothing left to prove

Nothing left to hide

Nothing left but acceptance

Nothing left but understanding

Nothing left but love

    Get rid of ego and nothing but love abounds. A raging fire to
    be doused by lots of water. Your poems are very enriching
    and emotional. I love your write and your concerns for mankind.
    Well crafted. (Report) Reply

    This is the secret of life.
    Between you and understanding is the ego.
    An ignorant guy who pretends to be wise.

    I am very impressed by this short, terse and very lucid expression of a great truth.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
