Poem: How "I" Have Come to Understand

When writing, they say
To avoid the word “I”
It is an indication of
Selfish character,

In this verse I will use the word “I”
Too many times
To tell you about the journey I went on
The struggle for detachment
Realizing that to be hurt on account of
Is also a sign of ego
Focusing too much on the “I”
Thinking about
How they should have treated me
How I am frustrated because of them
Me and them

There is no me
There is no them
Something lost
Something found
There is only us
And we
And our Creator
