A free verse poem of the ego claiming responsibility.


Negative Pride

Holding your head up high,
Arrogance is ready to fight.

Challenging an enemy with honor,
Determined to win a pointless battle.

A proud stance duels until the end,
As egotism leads to a lost cause.

Poison of vanity leads to catastrophe,
When defeat causes many predicaments.

The negative pride must be put aside,
By letting the ego accept humility.

This is so valid particularly in today's society and politics.
