Fractured Self

byLadynStFreknBed©

Solemn ego strives to strike a balance
and present fractured self as unified
as the superego fights the Id’s dance.

The self is not composed merely by chance-
external forces framed by clay inside.
Solemn ego strives to strike a balance.

Conflicting elements hidden from glance-
rage and ecstasy wash like flowing tide
as the superego fights the Id’s dance.

Drives towards solitude, distrust, and romance-
embracing childish trust within has died
Solemn ego strives to strike a balance.

Artistic craft, self-expression enhance
the dynamics I would otherwise hide
as the superego fights the Id’s dance.

If in life’s journey I am to advance,
I’ll rejoice in the war where I reside.
Solemn ego strives to strike a balance
as the superego fights the Id’s dance.
