|If I become overconfident,||I will recall my failures.|
|If I overindulge,||I will think of past hungers.|
|If I feel complacency,||I will remember my competition.|
|If I enjoy moments of greatness,||I will remember moments of shame.|
|If I feel all powerful,||I will try to stop the wind.|
|If I attain great wealth,||I will remember one unfed mouth.|
|If I become overly proud,||I will remember a moment of weakness.|
|If I feel my skill is unmatched,||I will look at the stars.|
Today I will be master of my emotions.
There is eloquence in simplicity,
And strength as well.
