Vanity

Poetry
July 26, 2018

Vanity – Defined as “Inconsequential Pride of Self”
Many now think of Mirrors and Make-Up Shelf
“Inconsequential!” What a word, The more you apply  the more it’s Absurd
What possible actions, please do tell…   have no affect, from my choice of self-sell
Modesty and Ego entwined in one space, each one effects the changes to face
Esteem drives Dignity, Confidence may Assume some Respect
Conceit in the Judging and the Judged, means it’s rarely just as we expect
So while I flirt with Presentation going Forward
And consider what I see looking Back
Greater study of the words I choose to express
retains humility,  as I assert to Address
Inconsequential Vanity brought me to my Dignity,
The Mirror waits patiently as I write
Desperately I Grasp at Integrity,
Show the honest reflect of me,
that’s why I added ‘SAMI’
to Stuart Edward Tite
