Surrendering Social Self To Real Self

Real self is unselfconscious

we are addicted to social self
we are committed to it
unconsciously ofcourse
real self cannot birth
without making the social self
— the social self slavery — conscious
painfully seeing lack of freedom
painfully seeing the lie “social-self bullying-
is my freewill”
then as a surprise,
the real self may begin
to touch earth through your body
little by little
here and then
it may risk emerging
or else comofortably lay-
in the bed of lies righteously and skillfully (or whatever jargons)
than river of life courageously and riskfully.

In all its excuses and opinionated nonsenses masquerading as self-expression social-self has only one strong voice “I won’t let you see light of the day”

Man’s main task is to give birth to himself. ”
Erich Fromm
