Bragging Modesty (A poem)

Why boast modesty? Wasn’t handpicked
Bragging seems silly, when was obligation strict.
Posing wise on patterns borrowed by others
Followed a code & custom, or advise by mothers.
Justifying tartness, when Grapes felt sour
Choice will be different, when given some power.
Sour now bad and “those grapes weren’t mine”
Go with the flock, is their new punch line.
Decency out; it’s Vanity that’s in
Advance WE are, hold up the chin.
(Dear) Modesty is a virtue but its flaunting isn’t smart
Simple or Not, be honest with all heart.
(Samima)
