The Tallest Tree had a Striking Ego

The Tallest Tree once looked down upon the ones smaller than he, then got struck by lightning!

once looked down upon

Reflection:

Appreciate all that you have;
Be humble for all that you are.
Learn for yourself, not for the class;
And only strive to raise your own bar.

For all that you were & are just now;
Will inevitably, like all things, be struck down.

Ego is the useless residue left behind with all else removed.
