The Deceitful Fruit of Pride

The Deceitful Fruit of Pride
January 11
Proverbs 11:2
When pride comes then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom.

When it all fell apart nobody knew
‘cause he kept it hidden from view
self assured that he could go alone
he white-knuckled his burden for his own

she had everything under control
with everything necessary to reach her goal
she did the work with no assistance
propelling herself with inner persistance

they tried to keep a lid on what took place
in order that they both might save face
but it’s impossible to resist the tide
when one’s motivations are pride

hidden shame and self assurance are surely dead giveaways
for they are not controlled but they have their own ways
no refuge do they offer so truth comes outside
and all that’s left is dishonor the deceitful fruit of pride
