The world higher than the place of GODS

A person who is proud of ‘himself'
Does not own his body and physique for ever!

A person who thinks the wealth is ‘MINE',
The wealth will not come with him
While he breaths his last breath!

"A person who cuts the pride of ‘I' and ‘MINE'
Will enter the world higher than the place of GODS"

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
