An Ego That Wouldn’t Relent

Once I walked with head held high,
Convinced I knew what life meant,
I held fast to all my beliefs,
With an ego that wouldn't relent.

But then came a moment,
That changed everything inside,
A realization struck me hard,
And with it, my old self died.

I saw the world in a new light,
One that I had never known,
And suddenly all that I believed,
Felt foreign and overblown.

I felt a shift in my heart,
As if it were breaking apart,
And in that moment of pain,
I knew a new start.

For though I'd lost my bearings,
And my ego was brought low,
I saw the world in a new way,
And my heart began to grow.

I learned to listen to others,
To accept their thoughts and fears,
And in that newfound empathy,
I found a way to truly care.

So though I may have lost my way,
And my heart was torn apart,
I found a new beginning,
With a change of heart.
