Fruit of betrayal I was subjected to by a very trusted friend. It was also influenced by a video I watch on youtube concerning the former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher. It can also been seen as an overt critic towards capitalism. It written with a similar pattern of the Ghanaian pledge.

I promise on my honor to be faithful and loyal to my Ego and self belief

I pledge myself to the service of I, with all my strength and with all my heart.

I promise to see not myself as inferior to no other apart from the sky.

I pledge allegiance to the trinity of individualism, me, myself and I, never to see myself as “flawful” and wrong doer.

I swore to accept and recognize other people’s ideologies just as I see and recognize the particles in the air.

Supreme and divine -like is how I will carry myself and will aim to see others as merely parjanya.

I fully pledge to demonstrate only one sentiment, the feeling of superiority and will aim to push my way through to help deliver the world from incapables and ingenious people.

I will forever make sure the Goddess’ wise and sacred words

“…There are individuals …and people must look at themselves first”

abide in my heart and illuminate my path, thus it will keep me motivated and aide me achieve my goals in life.

I vow to portray myself as the vutruvian man and be at the epicenter of the universe.

I set out not be liked thus I will not be prepared to compromise on anything at anytime, this I believe will help me achieve and succeed.

I will beseech any forms of enemies of progress and imps disguise in the face of democracy and humanism who will seek to counter argue my claims by creating false consciousness and making me appear as authoritative.

I therefore invoke the power of the triumvirate of individualism and the strength and might of I to empower and to enlighten me to abhor to the oath I have taken.

So help me the spirit of prima donna.

    I think this is a well written piece of poetry, however it is a little selfish. I understand where you are coming from though. Good work! I can’t wait to read more from you!!

    I took about three readings to understand all the elements – so interesting and clever.

    The line about accepting other people’s ideologies the way one sees the particles of the air is clever – of course one cannot see the particles of the air.

    I think the world needs more self interest, not less!

    On the whole, the flow of the text reminds me of Desiderata. If you are not familiar with that poem, it also expresses a unique view of self.

    Thank you for creating it! Looking forward to more…
