Sonnet: Man’s Downhill Course! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

When pride engulfs a human mind and heart,
And selfishness is prime motive that goads,
And telling lies becomes life’s innate part,
A man is already on marshy roads!

When ambition in life surpasses well
All duties and responsibilities,
His dignity, a man begins to sell
And multiplies his life’s iniquities!

When man begins to feel that he is great,
And cannot recognize his brethren’s call,
His glory has begun to attenuate:
His graph of fame plummets before downfall!

No longer can one call that man a man;
Awaste has gone his entire life’s span!
