"An Ocean Of Pride"
The greatest achievement! And confidence found!
Is discovered on knees! Where godly strength, there abounds!
I was once prideful! And charted a course!
Void of kindness and insight! It led to remorse!
"No need for God!" I struggled and fought!
Pride left me empty! Of faith hidden! Nor sought!
I felt I was better! Should be esteemed by the weak!
"I could make it alone!" Without Him, others seek!
Later to learn! "How forlorn! And how vain!"
For the One I disdained! Left me deserted, in pain!
Isolated and humbled! To Him words would throng!
Sorrowing! Realizing! My actions were wrong!
The words came certain! Penetrated my soul!
Etched in wisdom! God's love here foretold!
"No man is an island! Nor greatness prevail!
Until God sets the wind! That opens the sail!"
