Pride's A Bitch

Wed, 01/16/2019 - 14:32 -- msa139

Why become so cruel
You're acting like a brute
Scaring people away
"Help me," you don't say
Pride is what you take

Giving yourself too much reliance
Showing Almighty so much defiance
You don't come straight out the womb
Already knowing how to tie your shoes
Pride makes fools

Rise above those limits
Why must you stay in it
Tides of the proud
Why become so loud
Why hide in the crowd

You're not going anywhere
Putting yourself through wear and tear
Unlocked doors are better than slammed doors
Find some way to get off the floor
Don't let pride become a fort
