Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night Poem by Jarrod Wakefield

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Rating: 2.7


From life we have been learning from before we learned to crawl,
The thing we refer to as pride not easily understood
A little pride is necessary but too much pride not good
A truly humble person is one you don't often meetThe self opinionated and self conceited never known to be rare
Those who promote their egos in the bigger World out there
From the seeds of a big ego success is often grown
A humble quiet achiever is one I have not known
A little pride is necessary and self esteem okay
But too much pride can lead to arrogance and that seems sad to say.
