When You Let Pride In
Dwelling in my thoughts
reminiscing from the past;
sure can rewrite my future
while I cant rewrite my past.
Parents holding onto resentment
while I change my mindset and walk in a different direction;
I can't help but question their actions,
I don’t want pride to ruin my chances for a better life.
Why let pride decide my path?
Praying I never fall into this temptation of pointing fingers,
dwelling in the past, letting this affect my soul.
I see so much hurt in their lives,
letting this become a metal strain
while pride keeps roaming around in their heads ;
causing irritable behavior that I pray won’t hinder them forever.
This inspired a fire in me to never let past failures consume my chances
to live a happy life, full of blessings from above.
