The inside contempt mind of oneself,
Stubborn proud personality without reasoning in views.
The pride incurs lost self, lost love and respect.
It damage the relationship, the opportunity of life
And people in the way. It loses sound mind of
Knowledge; being rude, lost direction, luck drive out,
Time and energy gone, nothing to accomplish.
It corrupt the happiness, quilt appeared in mind,
Lost self-respect. Pride is like a cancer that needs to be cure,
To gain the heart of wisdom. Humbleness,
Self-slow in anger wins oneself and others.
Do not waste the trust of people, the self to be transparent in
Giving and accepting.
Life is a journey to be mature, to live forward by
It best understood backward.
