Seven Deadly Sins: Pride - Poem by Daya Nandan

Pride is important but never too much
For pride in excess has a fatal touch,
It blinds the eyes and clouds the mind,
It makes humility and compassion hard to find,

Pride in excess is a weakness, it blocks your vision,
Never fails to make you choose the wrong decision,
It blinds the heart to understand the feelings of others,
It breaks the bonds between lovers, brothers and mothers,

Excess pride is useless, nothing more than vanity,
And great vanity in time gives rise to insanity,
It can make you irrational and behave like a fool,
Do cruel things as well as things so uncool,

Look at Hitler and the many evil men of the world,
They worshiped pride as they killed each boy and girl, i
Pride can spawn evil and wickedness in the blinded heart,
Destroying relationships and tearing families and lovers apart,

There is a reason that pride is a deadly sin in Christianity,
And that is because it taints the soul and kills humanity,
It is nothing more than an illusion of happiness,
For in time everyone realizes it truly evokes sadness,

It deludes the mind and puts hearts in the wrong direction,
And devours the host's prideful soul like a viral infection,
It makes people egoistic as it possesses their mind,
And once its too late the soul is impossible to find,

It blocks men from the gates of logic and love,
Pushes their soul away from god above,
Too much of pride is truly a dangerous deadly sin,
That devours the soul and the body you are in,
