Pride And Ego - Poem by Philo Yan

Pride comes before the fall.
Learn from mistakes, that's all,
The bigger the Ego, the harder you fall,
So stand firm, stand straight, stand tall.
Down, not out, pick yourself up,
Much growing to be done, Young pup!
Every scar tells a story,
A track of your history,
What is learned, unlearn
What is unlearned, relearn!
