The Giant Lizard



I was standing by window.
Suddenly a Giant Lizard appeared,
crawling on the narrow path.
I was taken aback and feared.

Suddenly it stopped
and bent its head towards me.
I threw a stick.
Its terrorized eyes were fixed on me.

Ignoring me again it proceeded
towards the swampy land
on its own way.
My ego was shattered.

Then I sought answer
from my conscience.
'Shun ego', 'Grow humanity.
I got advice.
