Vanity Re-named Perhaps 2011

Vanity Re-named, Perhaps


Not reveling in one’s run,

Who wants to be remembered

Only when they’re gone?

You a memory in time: a force

Whose praise you always thought would be

A nice thing to enjoy while here.

You are not here to give it ear.

No wonder great religions

Call for dwindling interest in the ego,

Foster focusing on source.

Loving all as brothers,

Comforted in knowing that you share with others

Something that is you at bottom.

You could rest in peace.

The rest a vanity and arrogance.
