Pride


image

Hold your head high
Self esteem is your claim
Let nobody deny
Climb till perihelion
Eclipse the sun
Delineate your persona
comparable to none
Stand on a pedestal and hear them praise
The servile crowd
To you their goblets raise
Then,puff not your chest
Put not yourself above the rest
But,let tears of gratitude fall
In joyful acceptance before all
For one who floats on high
Shall never conquer the sky
But shall the humble
The mountains stand firm
Even on the advent of a storm
The mightier tempest tramples it like a worm
And leaves ashes of the misplaced pride
What perspicacity do you have for pride?
You are all crushed by mortality
In the end you are skinned
Of wealth,charisma and hence vanity
Yet you fight to establish superiority
You breathe in envy
And breathe out enemity
Forget your brother
Omit any other
But does your arrogance even spare your lover?
