My very first Poem

Arrogance and Irritation

In my Ignorance, I showed Arrogance

Took pride in every step,

To stop this dirty business,

Was my prep!


I showed behavior of some egoistic type

Like the mayor’s towards the man with the pipe.

It became a necessity, that taking pride,

I did not know it deteriorated me from inside.


Every moment I used to show off,

My heart became cold and little than the Lilliputian dwarf,

In the skill of boasting I was honed,

With negative attitude, my nature was adorned.


While the great actions of mine, I used to restate,

The one thing I also did, was to irritate,

Uncertain of the reactions of the stranger,

One would roll in laughter, the other would rage in anger.


Poor and silly jokes all the time,

Alas! I was performing a funny crime,

I am really very sorry I committed this sin,

Now I want to remove this habit, do I have to gulp some gin?


Huh! I have removed this bad habit,

Dropped and buried it in some deep pit,

Now live a wonderful life with friends many more,

I am happy to proceed in my life, one step fore.
