Sonnet: In Self-Praise

I’ll fight like a lion and take the bull;
I’m no coward that preys upon a kid!
An Autodidact can’t make his life dull;
I do what just my conscience me does bid.

I never yearn for easy wealth or name;
If people ignore me, I them ignore;
I never walk the easy road to fame;
If not this, God opens a newer door!

Nothing on earth can prevent my ascent;
With God as Friend, why should I be afraid?
My nose can diagnose any subtle scent;
I am at ease although, a bit ill-paid.

Use me to improve mankind God, I ask;
But never let my heart break like a flask!

by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
