Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.” (KJV)
A vain quest for glory
Whilst in the heat of battle
He sacrificed all
His life plainly worth so little
Done not for the common good
No ideal did he defend
His last breath he wasted
Not even to save a friend
Woe! is he who craves adulation
The adoration of the masses
And praises from his peers!
His cairn, not stone but ashes
Men who forfeited their lives
Replete in the annals of history
But their heroism’s for the greater good
Resulting in society’s victory
But a sacrifice for glory’s sake
Deserves only pillory
God alone is worthy of adoration
To Him we give praise and glory!
