Born To Be

Born from joy,
Born a boy,
Born to be—
To be me!

Not for brother,
Nor for mother,
Not for sister,
Father—other!

Others—each for self
To be, see and do,
Each one for one,
As I for I
And you for you.

Born from glee,
Born a she,
To aver—
Aver her!

Simple this—
Made from kiss,
Body’s bliss,
Love’s delight,
Mental flight.

Altruism
Is a prison.
Sacrifice
A sad bad vice.

Ego I—
Moral high;
Ego me—
Born to be!
