Few Things Worse - Poem by Francis Duggan

Few things worse than an ego out of control
'Tis detrimental to the human soul
For the accolades of the impressionable some with each other compete
Some spiritually drowning in their self conceit
Lucky are they at the applause of the adoring crowd
Who do feel humbled as opposed to over proud
At the achievement of their success they do not get carried away
Quiet waters run deep as the wise one did say
For self betterment in life most people strive
And we do need some ego just for to survive
But an over-inflated ego crowds the thinking mind
Though such never happens to the spiritual kind
It goes to your head when others your praises sing
But an over-inflated ego for you not a good thing.
