PRIDE


Many poems that I read, read badly toward pride,
but as for me, I must adimt, I'm on prides side.
I'm proud of all I am, and proud of all I do,
If you wore this uniform, you would be proud too.
I'm proud to be all I can be, every single day,
Proud like you, when home from school, your kid bring you an A.
Don't be convinced by what you read, that pride is always bad,
that pride is even concidered bad, just makes me kind of sad.
If prides a sin, I will not live, I'll gladly go to hell,
cuz in a world where prides a sin, hell I might as well.

Far south the lift,
