A Little Pride

A little pride is useful for one it does seem
But not healthy for the mind when in the extreme
For a strong sense of pride in the words of the wise
To feelings of self conceit of has been known to give rise
It is almost impossible for you not to feel proud
When others they are singing your praises loud
Too much praise can cause the ego to swell
And in the flattered mind for humility there is no space to dwell
Pride in moderation it is quite okay
But this applies to most things in truth one can say
But some with praise do get carried away
And on their human feelings the flatterers do prey
A little pride can be useful for one it does seem
But not healthy for the mind when in the extreme.
