lesson

Arrogance , pride and ungratefulness ,

crept in slowly in to every cell ,

always yelling , shouting and laughing ,

belittle others was a hobby tale……

selfish , miser and overcome by glory ,

purging praise and love for self ,

never realised that this could end 

a stroke of destiny , no one could help……..

now a loner yet praising himself ,

praying for success , bribing every deity ,

astrologers being tried and 

rituals followed , yet no sunshine

but ego , me and mine , all are fine…….

lessons not learnt , fading glory and fame ,

riches and jewels slipping away ,

now pleading and praying , 

desperately trying , 

to reset life , on tracks to fit ………

while he still feels , 

he is a jewel , rotting in hell , 

while he screams and yells 

God has his tale , a lesson to tell…….

    Reminds me of some world “leaders” who have hoodwinked our planet. Makes me angry and sad.
