|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.
