Value given to Self
Valued except by Ourselves
In the eyes of others
Is known as PRIDE

Success as defined
By our own cognition
Unable to attain
For whatever reason
Valuation based on Estimation
Otherwise known as

Situation not Conducive
People not Receptive
Plans not bearing fruition
Leading to frustration
In the process loosing composure
Devil within known as ANGER

Lack of understanding
Uncomfortable with own being
Creating a non existent living
Mind and Heart detached
Inability to face reality
Living in a world of fantasy
Believing in make believe
Translation into words
Seldom fooling others
Only fooling the I
Meaning of LIE

Wanting to Possess
Wanting to only Possess
Not interested in the process
Focusing on end result
Always half empty
Termed as GREEDY

Inner peace
Destroyed by others Deeds
Focus on others
Lack of Maturity
Filled with Negativity

Resourceful absent
Lifestyle Persistent
Inability to balance
Creates imbalance
Calling on others
Fulfill your desires
Continuing the game
In one word SHAME

Clarity on Vacuum
Blurry on Blessing
Insensitive Cognition
Lacks Perception
Only Half Full

Pray till you get
After Gotten Forget
Fulfill lifes needs
Through Money and Deeds
Goodwill monetized
Live life Kingsize
Memory for convenience
Lack of Conscience
Judas kiss
True self another layer
Unforgivable BETRAYAL

Overrating the I
Revolving around My
Sense of Doership
Give none their due
Ego fanned at Cue
None Equal
Illusionary Potrayal
Others Potential
Put down at Will
Quality Malignant
In one word ARROGANT

Always with make up
Behavior made up
Reflected Outside
Different Inside
Permanency of Potrayal
To self Disloyal
Not Self Worthy

Personal Pleasure
Seeking Advantage
Own Welfare
Devil may care
Exclusive ever
Inclusive never
Disregard the other
Avoidable fetish
Characterized SELFISH

Body language Revolting
Words Wounding
Bad host
Offer not a Chair
Duty Beware
Bad upbringing
Overrated sense of due
Classified as RUDE

Call him a Clown
Break him down
Contradict his views
Laugh at his mannerisms
Part of a crowd
Make fun aloud
Make him look silly
The doer a BULLY

In Ambition Similar
Path unclear
Achieve at any Cost
Destroy career
Does not matter
Dual thought process
Not contend with progress
Feels secure when
The others Regress
Any lengths gone
I alone but None
Date fixed to
Dance with the Devil
Despicable and EVIL
