Vanity Fair

Vanity fair is an everyday circus
Played not only by the rich but common people like us
Always comparing, trying to outdo each other
We keep getting into one muddle or another

Let not your vanity become too cheap
since what you sow so shall you reap
So what exactly is it we fear
There is a place for everyone here

Let go of it and be what you are
Be true to yourself and you will go far
why try being bad at being what you are not
When you can be good with all that you have got


This poem was selected and is part of an anthology available in Amazon.   The photograph was taken in the forests of Bandipur on the way to Ooty.
