Maybe the irony of this piece is that I subconsciously wrote it to satisfy and become comfortable with my own ego.

The ego gives the sword and shield to approach life with.

It grants me the bravado to attack the world in the manner I do.

It grants me the relentless pursuit to bring as much positivity I can into this world.

It grants me the heroism to empower others with infectious boldness and audacity.

It grants me the courage to conquer every challenge I face.

Once conquered: The foundation for my integrity and ego is solidified.

The cycle repeats.

We honor the idea of sun setting so it may rise once again.
