Struggles of Pride

Grasping tightly to my skin
So none would adventure inside
For if they saw the real me
They'd know of my struggles in pride

For though my heart may give to the world
My flesh tries to steal the show
I know its different to display my weakness
But I want the world to know

I've become like Paul's own demonstration 
To do what I know I ought not
Its a struggle playing this mascarade
When I fear every second getting caught

It's almost as if I feel invincible 
Being the only one deserving the toast
When the realization is that without Christ
I'd have nothing in which I could boast

I want to be genuinely loving
And not always all about me 
So God take my focus off my own being
And advert my eyes to Thee

Please Lord, humble me in your way only
Bring me down from my high horse
For only you can save this simulation 
Before it becomes any worse

So witness my confession written down
I'm sick of acting with arrogance 
Correct and rebuke the spirit in depth
And destroy this haughty like prance

Take back my craved mirrored obsession ego
Where behind the faux alter i'd hide
Weld up in life a new spirit within 
Without all the struggles of pride
