Vainglory - Poem by Snake Blocker

Ostentation…
When clouds are broken, can I fix them?
Can I ever find the end of a rainbow when it is a circle?
Can my shadow form without a little light?
Can I really stay still without a free trip around the sun?
If I'm not near, can your tree fall without making a sound?

…More vainglory to go around.

Exhibitionism…
Can I disappoint the moon when my intentions are true?
Can I disappoint you without knowing why?
Can the magical dance I see in your soul become anew?
Do you see me as an Apache or an Egomaniac?
If I hurt you, I beg forgiveness…like a dog on the ground,

…More vainglory to go around.

Pomposity…
My journey is NOT to become someone you will hate.
My thoughts mirror your very own ideas.
My heart is completely given to you…I pray it is enough.
If I don't respond with the right words, I am unlearned.
I am who I am…I've never been one to express what I've found,

…More vainglory to go around.
What is the reason for your animosity?
What is the reason for such insanity?
What is the reason for the insecurity?
Why do you believe the deception?
What do you think of your life?

Arrogance…
I know I'm not proper.
I know I'm not polite…but my love is pure.
I believed every word you told me…every poem you wrote me,
Every kiss you gave me…I will never take that for granted.
Can I read your mind…could a love rebound?

…More vainglory to go around.
