Hubris Syndrome

A great fall awaits those who ascend,
Believing they are above all else.

The gods will not tolerate such arrogance.
Striking down those who dare
To challenge their dominance.

In the glow of success, keep your pride in check,
Don’t let the allure of power lead you on.
For hubris is a fleeting shadow,
That can inadvertently cast you into the abyss.

Remember Icarus,
Who dared to conquer the golden sun,
His wings of wax, a symbol of transient power,
Melted in the thrill of flight and heat, resulting in his fall.

So stay humble, stay grounded,
Even when walking the halls of power.
Avoid the wrath of the gods,
And a downfall not of fate, but of that of your own hands.

Leave your thought.
