People who welter in self doubt
Chained by dwindling self esteem
And crippled by limitations
Stoop to mean ways
To topple great minds.
Souls narrowed by greed
Envious of the truly talented
They turn nasty and petty
Devious plans plague their mind
Transforming them into devil incarnate
Hiding behind a multi faceted mask
Self proclaimed victims,
Prey on uncorrupted souls
Stealthily conniving to topple and conquer
Ravaging the deserving to be the self anointed rulers.
They craftily cast their dice
Climbing the ladder of success and pride
Only to dwell in a Fool’s paradise
Alas! All battles cannot be won by vice
Only courage and valour will win the lost paradise.
