Ego

I’ve Heard it Before

It’s a shame
To be knowledgeable yet useless
To be intelligent yet unaware
To be heard yet ignored
To be seen yet invisible
To speak,
Godly words that
Fall on deaf ears
Because your ego
Drowns out the sound of
Your truth

You want to be received,
But you haven’t learned
How to give
