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!
