THE GREATEST CONQUEST

The Greatest Conquest

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [The Greatest Conquest]

When you defeated dearth
Trampled upon lack and scarcity
Tamed destitution and danger
Did you conquer self?

When you overcame illiteracy
Filled your mind with information
Earned the highest degree
Did you conquer self?

When you broke away from heathenism
Made progress as a religious fanatic
And sang like a Cherub
Did you care to conquer self?

When you discovered your missing rib
Or Prince Charming gained
As adrenaline got fired into your veins
Did you yourself govern?

When in your calling or career
You rose meteorically
Accolade and acclaim clothed you
Did you care to conquer self?
