A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

For Me!


If there’s one thing
One loves to do –
(Me, for a start!)
And one does it well, too-

Is pat oneself on one’s back!

It helps, of course, enormously,
When others do too.
(Pat us, that is, as much as themselves!)

That familiar feeling of
Ah! Yes, how nice, that
Others feel the same way
As I do, about me!

Always, but always, helps.

Your manner expansive,
And generous, you grow,
And nurture, the ballooning ego;
Never realizing how much
You’ve filled yourself with Hot Air!

And as one gently rises,
Wafting on the paeans one
Sings to oneself,
Little does one realize
How space shall consume
That uniqueness,
And how unimaginably lonely,
It can get, At The Top!

Thanks to the Terrific Two:)
