OXI-MORON: Confidence

Confidence, one of the best emotions to have,

But with confidence comes a great need of control

Over yourself

Lose this control,

Fail yourself.


Confidence will overpower your brain.

It may even cause unwanted attention.

Confidence can be the downfall of mankind.

Let confidence overpower your brain,

Fail yourself.


Confidence will turn to courage,

And courage to pride.

And if you change to pride

Prepare for it to be torn,

Fail yourself.


But if success is won in this battle against confidence,

And control of yourself stays,

And you can still speak your own mind,

And don’t end up with a torn pride,

Then and only then have you

Succeeded, not failed,
