‘I’ used in ego,
Ego brings you down surely.
Surely then is humbled pride.
Pride that came with success, clearly.

Clearly success is short-lived with ‘I’.
‘I’ is that stone over which you stumble.
Stumble and fall that you may know.
Know, that loved are only those humble!

This has been written for the Z-A in 26 Days Challenge at 'I Rhyme Without Reason'
