Best Jeffrey Lee Poems

It either kills the person or gives them glory.
It has it’s own life and demands territory. 
It is one of the seven most deadly sins.
Be very careful because it could make your life end.
It is the contrast of real inner strength.
It has a unforgettable smell with a stench.
Pride generates vanity and humility. 
It reminds me of a Greek tragedy.
With that in mind I remain humble and meek.
But are proud men considered weak?
In a lot of religions pride is definitely forbidden. 
It is a mask behind which low self-esteem are hidden.
Pride makes you unable to listen to others or to God's messages. 
Some people have cockiness with smuggness as their self-righteousness.
They soon deny about having problems.
But by being so hardheaded and stubborn they can never solve them.
They need to shed their masks, which covers low self-esteem, a lack of self-
confidence, and a sense of insecurity. 
Seek God and keep Jesus in your life to make you happy.

"Blessed is that man that makes the Lord his trust, and looks not to the proud, 
nor to those that turn aside to lies." (Psalm 40:4)
