Pride,higher than the sky.
Self esteem in heaps.
Jealousy and anger,
hostility among fellow beings.

Avarice and possessiveness,
for mundane pleasures.
Cruelty and dominance,
bloody wars in the name of peace.

Power and pomp,
delusion deviating,
from the universal truth,
all is temporary on this plane.

What do we take with us?
All is left behind.
Like we came, we depart,
taking nothingness alone!
