Humility & Pride

The longest way around
Is the shortest way home
The longing bell’s sound
Toll from far away dome.

Such is life for drunkard
In somber, sober mode
Searching for his shepherd
Where seeds of hope were sowed.

The shortest way astray
Lured by animosity
The longest way “they say”
Away from humble humility.

Such is life for sober
Coded by deceit and pride
Failing, falling like October
Deceiving all - for whom He died.
