Pride


Pride

Pride is a sin,
That keeps you locked within,

The yes,

the please,

the more,

Pride hits the slamming door!

Keep your head up high,
Pride will not ask why,

Step on those below,
Step on up to the show.

Pride is a sin,
Not just a simple sin,

It takes a mouse,
Not a man,
To make pride
The drive within.

Pride is a sin,
That keeps you locked within,

The yes,

the please,

the more,

Pride hits the slamming door!

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
