You create when the ego is not on your shoulder
Filtering every word into its cookie cutter form,
Giving a shade and shape to every idea.
Evaluating the accuracy, the validity, the potency of your unique consciousness.
You create in that rare brief moment,
When you are enough,
And you are alive.
My ego is…….
A multi coloured parrot that sits on my shoulder.
Sometimes I squint,
And it disappears.
I can write.
