We've all got an ego- a teeny, tiny, nasty one.
How would you react if life asked you to get rid of it?
The task isn't easy, nor is the picture of our lives rosy.
Your empty head may give you a false sense of security,
It may seem like your only living lifeline;
Yet, reality bites as it draws you into it's hollow well.
Take pride in being you.
You aren't only who you might be someday.
You aren't a pale picture of the skeletons in your closet.
You are you- today, now, here- YOU are beautiful.
