Swallow your pride.
What good does it do you?
Let all feelings of ego
Simply pass right on through you.

Your pride serves no purpose
But to set you apart,
When all are the same
There inside in the heart.

Why strive to be different
When in seeing your link,
You’ll find you’re more peaceful
Than you’d ever dare think.

With pride comes a fall
When the truth you do learn
That no one is better
When to God you return.

So start living now
As if you had no hard shell.
Let all see your essence
May your words this please tell:

That love is the reason
You came to exist.
So try not to stand out
But see love – don’t resist.

If in others you meet
You see not the same trait,
Know that in sending them love,
You’ll see change, just you wait.
