A RACE TO BE THE BEST ( PRIDE )

Like an endless race to be the best.. Pride takes control of you.. When you reach the finish line and theres no-one left to compete against.. What then?

A RACE TO BE THE BEST ( PRIDE )

( Submission To Poem-A-Thon)

They take pride in all they do

patting themselves upon the back

Conceited in their own self-esteem

guidence is what they truly lack

**********

Indulging in their arrogant ways

like a race that never ends

they think they will never lose

yet no-one really wins

**********

Everthing they ever do

they must beat the rest

Failure makes them jealous

their bound to be the best

**********

Their unbreakable spirit

within their heart and mind

will be harsh and sadly broken

when they cross the finish line

**********
