    I find myself on my feet..
    And my parents are clapping hands..
    I smile and know that I’m smart..
    I’m confident and look fwd to my next plans..

    I’m on the cycle trying to peddle,
    I see the pride on my father’s face…
    And look at my excited mother,
    I now know I have crossed one more phase..

    I come running with the medal in my hand,
    It is the first time I gave a speech…
    My parents now say that I’m the best,
    I’m over confident that I’m out of reach…

    I get the best of grades in the class…
    And I know I’m the brightest..
    I ‘m arrogant and rude to all
    I‘m aware of no one being my closest..

    I get into best of universities..
    I’m away from my parents..
    Its now I face the world alone..
    And see so many talents..

    I now know I’m just one of the best
    A new awareness that I’m not the only one..
    I’m aware of people around me,
    Over confidence is something I should shun

    I get into best of Organizations..
    I see my friends and family happy for me..
    I realize I was blind all these days
    Their love was something I could never see..

    I get married to the love of my life..
    With this person I take a new stride..
    I’m a part of a new happy family..
    I leave behind all my false pride…

    Nice wordings on False pride Srilekh..
    False pride has alternative motives and as you sow, so shall you reap.
    but once you find true love I think you leave this pride behind, this is just to draw the attention of others.
