..Pride A Collection Of 7 Deadly Sins

Rating: 4.0

Seated to the left of Satan
Come forth the biggest fool
That walked among men
Behold the fool that fooled
A mouse making him
Think he was a lion
Fool beneath the disguise
You will always be a coward
You will never be
As mighty as a lion

Where all souls stand as equals

I think the first word should be reworked 'Sited' is not a word, did you perhaps mean seated?

Like all things in life, moderation should be used. to be a proud person in moderation and with humble respect for others is a good quality, but to allow it to blind you to the truths in life it becomes not only a terrible flaw but it blinds you to the truth as you so imagiatively put it... A mouse to think he's a lion But fools beneath the disguise A mouse is always a coward Not a mighty lion Great poem Eyan! Most certainly a 10+++ Jen

The poem points out the image of Satan as depicted in the truth of pride as a sin. And I agree with you it is indeed among the deadly seven sin according to the catholic tradition. In fact the fall of Satan and his angels (according to the story) caused by pride. However, I am convinced that man should have pride in his heart. It is only, knowing what pride really is- the healthy disposition of a balance personality. The pride is actually a right attitude in our selves by knowing our strength and weakness, potentiality and limitation, fullness and emptiness; in order for to project the right image in the right place with the right people at the right time. The poem is nice….please read my poem pride as my support to my “argument” (used in the discipline of philosophy) above. Thanks

A mouse cannot stand boldly before a cat, leave alone a lion.
