a whale's song

We need to stop feeding the “I” and the “me” and begin to nourish the “us” and the “we”.  We act with fevered intensity to build up the ego, to step ourselves ahead of others and fill the bottomless pit of insecurity; disconnected from others in our ivory tower of selfishness and greed.  Our life spent defending the shallow and hallow facade we hide behind, the mask we built.  The irony comes in the fact that the reason we built up these false walls in the first place was so we could feel safe connecting to others, but in the end we rip ourselves from connection to self and others, left isolated in a fantasy we have created of “I” and “me”.
