Ego and surrender

Shadows lengthen as light dims, ego casts a long one

Over life, when there is barely a flicker seen

Of the inner light, surrender becomes hard

In that darkness, ego claims to fight for our rights

Which surrender allegedly gives away

A shadow can never light the way, the ego seeks

To hide by the light of the world, which plays to its strength

Everyone else is doing the same, those who surrender are few

They brave the dark, where no one else is seen

Drifting by the strength of a strange current, taking them downstream

Into a cave with a million candles, burning without melting wax

There isn’t a shadow of doubt, ego fights and surrender courts the world
