"A Certain Ego" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 31 August 2009.


It takes a certain ego to compose
a sentimental anthem in my name;
to set down words in poetry or prose
endeavoring to someday garner fame.
It takes a measure of audacity
to set the rhymes and organize the verse;
to strive in an author's capacity
and with poetic aptitude converse;
to reach for Time's eternal pen, and sign
my moniker in history's archive
with every beat and every metered line,
ensuring that my essence will survive.
It takes a certain ego to inscribe
elusive notions words cannot describe.
