To What Heights (The Price Of Self-Worth)

This poem is about pride and self-worth and to what extent one will go to get it and thus becomes evil in the pursue of it.

To what heights must one rise
 to feed his ego in seated skies,
       to feel a snippet of self-worth?

And to what length will one go,
Running here and there, to and fro,
         seeking their value on earth?

Can we stop the rain, bend the times,
 stop the conclusion of creative minds
             from their appointed birth?

Will we let our pride to the heavens float,
    put on the faces of the gods and gloat
                and land on Satan's turf

Will we run to such deceptive scenes
 and not realize such are but shallow dreams
 from which a glorious Star once fell

To such a low,
    where none dare go,
          to sit in the seat of hell?
