Ego Derived…..

From the Allographic workshop in Cambridge these words resonated in my mind from the word ‘Ego’:
Power… Fear… Uptight… Chains… Boundaries… Delusion… Lies… Humanity… Crushed… Fruitless… Commanding… Deadly… Visionless…

And from those words a poem birthed:

Hidden within humanity
Are the boundaries of delusion
Held strong by misplaced power
Fed by fruitless fear and lies
In a visionless future world
Hides the deadly chains
The lock and key lost in time
Yet time itself already crushed
Within its own delusion of lies
A fruitless circle of becoming
As the Serpent is fed

ouraborous

  1. I like this a lot, Janis, it has a flowing, circular feel to it – like the ouroborus! Looks like you had a good session yesterday at Allographic. I’m hoping to make it along next month.
