I was born a Libra

My mothers only one

Brimming with intuition

Gifted a sense of balance

Decisions made with grace

Tools that guided me through any outcome

October had no ambiguity

I was also born a man

Burdened by ego

Competitive to a fault

Slave to my instincts

Decisions made with hubris

Tipped my scale the wrong way

Libra sees the difference

October’s black and white

Ego has one I

He really likes to fight
