Iceberg




Iceberg
Real power lies beneath
Humility or deception


Mighty ship
Sinks with its vanity
Forbidden glory

  1. Lovely lines...yes...Ice berg is one of best examples one can give of humility or it's hidden potentials...

    and A might ship...full of self esteem sinks like a proud person who gets destroyed by his relentless pride...great example and can be portrayed in real life as well...!!!

  6. Man against nature

  11. and it was that deceptive power that certainly showed that vain ship a thing or two...actually, a horror story of greed, death, self-preservation, and cold hearts...

    1. It brutally demonstrated that size does matter but other way around, bigger the pride, faster the fall.

      Thanks a lot!
