Don’t Let

Don’t Let

 

Even when it all seems established and fruitful

Don’t let pride creep in

Even if you are swimming in a pool of emeralds and pearls

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you are sliding through life with all your trophies

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you’ve defeated giants and claimed territories

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Even when your table is filled with food

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when your cellar is well-stocked with the finest of wines

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you visit kings and queens

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you sit down to dine with the wise

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Even when they try to flatter you with sweet words of admiration

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you hear the crowd chant your name

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when they salute and serve you

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when all your prayers seem to be answered

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Remain humble and thankful!

 

 

 

Even when the morning goes and the evening comes

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when all doors seem to be closed

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they laugh at your perseverance and faith

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they turn you down and walk away

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Even when the rain begins to pour

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when the ones closest to you betray you

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when the tears threaten to pour

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when your wallet looks old and empty

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Even when your stomach growls and your tongue is dry

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they make silly faces and laugh at your dreams

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when you’ve been rejected and scorned

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when tomorrow seems too far

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Always believe, never lose faith!
