PRIDE

Behind the mask of our egos we hideWith our minds drenched in praises of our strengthBeneath the ocean of our achievements we sinkAnd let darkness crawl deep into our hearts

We hold our worth so high and deep
We steep our minds in the depth of our treasures
Singing tunes to adore our name
Basking ourselves in the flame of fame

We wash our faces in people’s praises
Erect walls of pride that makes us feel right
Slowly we slip into the arms of our doom
Because the devil ‘pride’ only visits with a fall
