May be all of us went wrong,
Arrogance was not all bad
Perhaps ,it was a protective shield
To avert scattering of our broken pieces
Which we kept hidden in the darkest corner
Of our timid souls.
To fend off attack on our fragile alter ego,
We often flaunt our coldheartedness .
Aren't we apprehensive of being ,exposed
What if , someone trade our innocence ;
What if , we get betrayed one more time ?
Before getting another deja vu ,
Why not , we put on a cloak of ruthlessness,
Let's take pride in being emotionally dead
May be we need compassion fatigue to take over us ,
Perhaps being conceit was are last option .
This time ,why not we destigmatise arrogance
As ,it's already fighting a fierce battle , taking all the blames selflessly , while being our guardian demon simultaneously .
