These days I hope to do what sages say:
rid myself of ego; erase the monster I
I want to be a selfless place for you to stay.
I'm thinking this week, maybe Saturday,
we could rendezvous chez moi, objectively
decide if I'm doing what the sages say.
Then, once I've practiced pushing self away
I'll take you on, you'll be me, and I'll be you.
I'll be the selfless place for you to stay.
if I am you, and you're still you
that means there's double you, but none of I.
That's the rub in doing what the sages say.
I truly want to keep my monstrous I at bay
but desperately I need to know what wise guy
picked only me to be a selfless place to stay.
Here's a perfect solution, I daresay.
You erase first, then me, then you
Then we'll both be doing what the sages say.
Two selfless places we can cuddle up and stay.
