A Shoulder Above Its Neck And Fame Above Its Name

This week has been a blessed week of Poems and after been inspired by a lot, I decided to compose mine, getting the inspiration in the Hospital (As Usual). It's a blend of Old English with its contemporary form which explains the features of Pride as a personality in an individual. I hope its cool and you do enjoy it.

Goest Astray Like A Lost Sheep!

Looketh up above thine shoulders,
as it tarries to see no one but thee alone,
even when thy path seemeth crooked,
and goest astray like a lost wondering sheep,
ye durst wax in the Barn of thine selfishness.
Thy ego seem so high to accept rebuke
and chastisement, at war with thy virtues.

Been sober, thy countenance speaketh not,
submitting only to thy will and thy will alone.
Always wanting to so'er up high,
but impatient to beget wings.

Ye only bequeath Love for thy honour
and thy appreciation, dost for thy increase.
Art thou worthy of thine brag?
Nay! But thy acclaim, betwixt fame and glory.

.

A Merchant, fullsome and majestic

Loudest in the proclamation of thy victories,
like a conqueror from whence sing of his battles
and a Merchant, fullsome and majestic.

Thy Robe, when touched or felt by she below,
light up fire from the fuel of thy Anger.
And thy apparel, more important than her siblings
Henceforth, beseech not thy friends,
for their company art thou ruthlessly bargained
with the proceedings of thy wanton folly.

Verily, verily this cancer-worm soweth deeply,
like the root of a deciduous Tree
and just before its leaves wither away,
the path to destruction befalls thee
and behold! the time to take heed hath by-passed thee.
Thy redemption, more difficult than building Rome
because the cup of thy transgression hath gone full.

Funom: I read your poem over at least twice and I certainly respect your work. I wish I could more fully appreciate your words and I believe that is my failing. Don't give up on me, I am going to read it and look deeper into its meaning.
Thank you, Funom. You have a beautiful mind and beautiful thoughts; I need to think more about it because I am always ready to learn.
Love from your friend, Ivyevelyn.

My dear Ivy, your comments are always taking me a step towards shedding tears... It's been a while and I miss the conversation and acquaintance as well. How have you been..

Its a Poem about arrogance and you know the Popular saying"Pride comes before destruction?" This Poem is all about how Pride is been exhibited and how soon it can destroy.. I hope you get the picture but if you don't, then just let me know, I will take my time to give u the meaning if each line and what my thoughts and mood were, when writing each part of this piece. Thanks for stopping by my dearest friend..

Of course, Funom. "Pride Comes Before a Fall". Once you said that, then the poem revealed its full meaning. I love your work and I want to fully appreciate it.
I hope you have been well - I always look out for your name. Why do my comments take you closer to shedding tears? My first poem was written just about the time I learned of my illness and I have come a long way since then. The encouragement and support from you all have carried me through some difficult days and at this time my blood counts are stable and I am feeling well. With love, from Ivyevelyn.
