The Mighty Eagle

Created On: 9/2/2016 12:41:36 PMAuthor: Myra Fernandes

O Eagle, mighty friend of mine,
Why can't you see your fellow friend shine?
All you want to show the world is thine,
When you see someone prosper,
You just sit and whine.

Most of the time you grumble and sit with a frown,
Always yearning to wear the Prosperity Crown.
Think of your fellow friend who is in need,
And lend him a helping hand which will be a good deed indeed.

You have clasped the crag with crooked hands,
And loaded piles of wealth on your lands.
You look so majestic and tall,
But your greed, ego and pride will be the reason for your downfall.

Good thought expressed in good writing - when might, power and fame overtake us we despise the less fortunate little realising the fall one day from our pedestal

Analyzing your poem.... It speaks much of the powerful and mighty. When I read it, It did not really speak about the eagle but of the many mighty people who have the power and the crown. It's kind of a reminder that achieve heights, many forget the power to do good. They are stuck with ego and pride. Some how they need to realize that every eagle that flies high needs to come down to have the basic necessities of life. Thus, over looking the pride and the crown. The poem is a reminder of the abilities of an eagle and a time and reflection of the power at our disposal. Very beautiful poem, with an excellent rhyme scheme. Good job Myra
