POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
contemplation on what real humility is, false humility and self derision is just another form of inward focused pride. The only thing that is not prideful is to say you are who God says you are. When people say I have a talent I don't want to say I don't or that 'it's a ll God'... God gave me that talent and I'm proud of it and I do have it and to say anything else is lie, and to God a liar by not agreeing with him, well I would say that is the most proud (prideful) thing one could do.
