Less ego,more Soul

Less ego, more soul.


Hard it is to cast aside our ego

Sticking to us like power glue,

Giving  the sense of self importance,

When actually it is the root of utter nescience,

Yes ignorance;

Ignorance which hampers the soul

From seeing one and all,

As the Lord’s creation justly,

Meting peace and spreading amity,

Love, respect and unity.   


Less ego will lead to having more feelings,

Soulful feelings,

Spreading beauty of fellowship, understanding,

Beauty of sharing,



Yes, kindheartedness,

Keeping a distance from self-centeredness,

Instead, practising selflessness,

Yes, the soul’s beauteousness,

To be able to enjoy lightheartedness.
