My Cup Of Arrogance

Let me give you
A sip from my cup
Of arrogance:

Proud am I
Now that I’m weak
And open
For the beating;

Boastful am I
To the anguish
My spirit

No, I shall be strongest
When I’m weary,
Dying by the corner
Of hopelessness
And grief.

Look, I’m sill alive.
Who then does spell
Victory in flames?

Let no one
Chide me
Of my happiness

For it is when I’m weak,
I’ve conquered.
