Praise and Criticism


 

 

The praise one has received
Is like a medal at the breast
It bears the name:
Give me something in return…

The criticism one has received
Is like an attached promissory note
It bears the name:
I give you something in return…

Ego needs applause


 

We say we want to share
But our ego is tricky
Wants to be heard and seen
Needs you, wherever you are

We fly in lies
Cheat ourselves
Are identified
With the mind

Our good words and deeds
Need ears and eyes
To caress our ego
To be proud

Silence has no witness
A way to overcome
Separation, illusion
A vortex without an echo
