Set Your Heart Free

You could stay angry forever, but you know that's not the truth, Because underneath that resentment is hurt from loving you, Even if it was only for a moment, it's better not to hide, Because, believe it or not, that resentment eats you up inside, It trickles down to the next in line, and leaves a sense of debree, There is no reconciliation, pride never sets our heart's free.....

Nicely expressed, Cortney! And you are quite correct...Pride is such a self-destructive malaise. My best regards...And a peaceful and content Easter. :) john

Thank you John and Happy Easter to you too, :) yes, i believe that, pride is very self destructive..pride never falls in love, it consumes you, makes you so focused on yourself you forget how to love others, and it's the deadliest of all sins.
