Reality

 Take your ego
Out for a walk
Let the cold wintry blast of existence
Shrink it a little
 
Deprive your id 
Of its desires
Let the searing hunger of the huddled masses
Starve it a little
 
Stick a pin
Puncture your pride
Let the stabbing thrusts of human shame
Pierce it a little
 
Swing a hammer
Smash your heart
Let the pain of a thousand broken hearts
Hurt it a little
 
Strike a match
Light your soul
Let the cries of countless innocent victims
Singe it a little
 
Smash the prism
Of your perceptions
Let a million bright rainbows of reality
Shine a little
