A wrong praise


it is human nature to feel good
when served with lavish food
praised few words in honor
appeasement theory even uncalled for

It is killing an ideal man
the downfall is not by only woman
it is done by great and close friends
this has remained clear trends

t is easy to boost a prestige
though it may not be done at ease
the opponent understands the try
but he fails to find and feels shy

downfall may be caused by only few or five
to whom you think very close and believe
pretty friends and fools get elated
when they are praised and equated

It kills spirit and self pride
it is intentional try to conceal or hide
the weakness may be exposed at later stage
you will be living under illusion with inability to manage

Your half work may be done with little praise
it may take him by surprise but erode the base
it will downgrade his thinking power
he may nose dive and enjoy position very lower

    An idealistic poem, radical and all swooping in approach yet the bitter pill that we must all swallow.I must i am guilty of this self debasing and talent killing crime, for no man could hide the imp of pride that comes from unsolicited praises. yet the flatterer is worthy of his wage, but the flattered is sure headed for destruction (Report) Reply

    The central idea 'The honour and praise will kill the spirit of mankind' is beautifully brought out. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
