It looks so pleasing and engaging,
But it is very tricky, and, yet, finicky,
That can pull us down beneath our feet,
With our own pride, while we’re rising up.
So let’s not yield us to our minds, which
May blind us to be demolished by the foe,
The enemy visible as a friend, though not.
Hence, we must be beware of praise
That may elicit us to lose our rise.
