Nietzsche and Freud came along
And told everyone that there is a side to themselves that they don’t know
Because of their teachings
Everyone thinks they know what they don’t know
They think that if they’re aware
And mindful of their behavior
And using the philosophies from these two men
(and many others that built upon their ideas)
They can diagnose themselves
They think they can know the unknown
But it’s just not that easy
A personality test
An astrological sign
A few books
And a few attempts to be ‘mindful of their behavior’
And ‘aware of their trauma’s’
They think they’ve got themselves all figured out.
This is probably when a new ‘ego’ is born
An even more delusional, and hidden deeper ego.
You cannot know the unknown
There will always be a side to ourselves that we don’t know
A stranger living in us
And who’s to say which one is the real you?
Certainly not you.
You and the delusion are one being. You cannot pull your eyes out and view yourself.
You cannot go to therapy for a few months
and think you have you all figured out.
It’ll take your whole life to figure you out
And even then,
So much mystery will remain.
