Poems - False pride

False pride

by jadia4708au

I claimed for every single achievement
Boosted a lot and felt it as memorable moment
Took false pride and acted as if I was whole and sole
Alas! I could understand the myth as whole

It is generally proclaimed that good deeds always help
Save from some kind of disasters and come to the rescue of self
Person remains unconcerned even if something turns out to be against
As self confidence and full contentment doesn’t allow further twist

What are we trying to project before world?
Superiority complex or about the things so far untold
It is known since ages that men has always remained choosey
Not cared for anything but shown keen interest in money

Can we ever claim and assure the full proof of success?
If so then why some of the clues are left behind as traces
Guilty people are caught little later much to their annoyance
People are brought to the sense and reminded about truth at once

We are just a medium and excel with blessings
Some of us might lead the life of rich man or king
It is a fact and generally believed in good faith
Life is certainly taken as temporary phase to be ended with death

I feel little awkward when people try to prove contrary
It has no relevance in real life and totally unnecessary
Even if we have fortune in abundance at disposal
We act as miser and turn down any good proposal

It has different joy when we silently enjoy
Employ honest means and avoid any ploy
Think that you are fortunate enough to have it at your end
Look sympathetically; spend generously among poor, relatives and friends

Mehta Bhai, the first stanza contains the philosophy of the Bhagawadgita - "Prakriter kriyamaanaani karmaani sarvashaha | Ahankaara vimoodhaatma aham kartaa iti manyate || (All actions are result of action and reaction of nature. Man who has lost his senses due to arrogance thinks he is the doer.) Elsewhere in your poem there is Sankara's philosophy - Maayaavada. I generally send responses to young poets who require encouragement and appreciation. But an axception has been made in your case. You have been converting your experience into poetry which is very valuable. Sometimes you are very bold. Nissim Eziekill wrote in one of his articles that no poet has yet described the beauty of his own wife. Some poems that have appeared in this site have proved him to be wrong.

I like the reprimanding clarity of this piece.
Excusing no one as it directly speaks to one.
Nice rhymes too.

Best wishes,
