Another Toast To Ploutos

How do I judge people who wear fine clothes with an attitude? Hippocrates, nothing else! I have worn trendy clothes and made me look great, many likes and compliments I got that widened this incredible smile part of my trait; suddenly, sad eyes turned to happy eyes! How do I deal with people with excessive pride? I become humbler than they should be, and they never thought it was possible! Being too proud keep us from being meek, isn't this the true image most of us seek? Can our humble attitude be distinguished from that of the powerful who amass fortunes to build another beautiful mansion to satisfy their greedy ego and be spoken of eloquently? Will they experience inquietude? I remain true to myself, being glad for my achievements, never feeling above the others who boast, who pursue materialism with madness and become self-proclaimed gods; can their increase in wealth be another toast to Ploutos who's different from a common elf?

Being true to yourself is always preferable to having “excessive pride” or wearing “fine clothes”. Well penned.
