Ego With Nobility


You should simple thinking
And preparedness for sinking
Let self pride be hurt or found
And the very next moment to be razed to ground

So many things
Human being
May want to retain
And maintain

The self pride is necessary
To maintain identity and integrity
It is in no way negotiable
Even if there exists such problem

Rich may want to show luxurious style
Poor mad have principles ready meanwhile
Human tendency is such to reflect
What is gong on in mind to reveal and act?

So somewhere it has grown disproportionately
The arrogance coupled with attitude is made known immediately
We will in straight term call such persons as “stupid or fool”
Blinded either by wealth or proved successful

Simple appearance is also an attitude
Person bows down with humble gratitude
Such etiquette on part of person gives him leverage
He is coming out as noble man even at young age

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
