Moments of glory

In the moments of glory

One remembers god, parents, mentors, chance, luck.

One gets bitten by the humility bug.

In the moments of glory

One recalls his humble beginning.

Rising from the brink of defeat, makes the hour more credible.

In the moments of glory

Expressions become translations

Of humility, acknowledgement, and pride.

In the moments of glory

Along with the accomplishments,

One remembers defeats.

In those emotional moments,

One is often found to display manufactured emotions.

In the moments of glory

Fear of sliding down, often knocks the mind.

May be, for winning the battle

One has lost many battles.
