For all your pride

Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase. ~ Daniel 4:37

For All Your Pride

Be careful of how you look at me with judgement in your face
As if I were some unlawful, unfit, disgrace.
Your shoes are Bally while mine are borrowed
Like the time of both of our tomorrows.
There’s naught you’ve done to deserve your lot ~
Any more or less than I, standing here on opposite side?
I pity you for all your pride!
For I serve a God who is able to the proud abase
Soon another shall look at you with judgement in her face.

~ Auntie Quary (Written without anger or malice, but with sincere sorrow for those who lack pity.)
