    Swollen Shame

    From its brazen swelling,
    Invincibility took hold,
    And blindly it pushed its way through...
    Til a sharp barricade,
    Forced acknowledgement of the errors
    Made from foolish decisions...
    Assumed minor at the time.
    Now the spotlight shines,
    Showing all the misconceptions,
    And a once so arrogant entity
    Begs for its opportunity
    To hide,
    From the inevitable shame it now knows.
    But such is a common journey
    For the ego,
    One of our greatest human flaws,
    And the ego may only swell justly,
    If a lesson is learned from each bruise.
