silver fish lugs
his bag over my table
the class all absorbed
in theory of relativity

Relativity and rivalry

Merit exists in relativity.
Urge to grow exists in rivalry.
Both are bad in their resultant effects.
Residues are prejudice and enmities.

When will ego sleep?

Ego lives from comparison;
Ego lives from relativity.
Ego live from the applause.
Be alone with no one around
In an island. Ego will sleep.
