Arrogance drags you down,
slowly and surely
it drags you down in a pit you yourself are digging.
you wont realize it until you’re trapped
and the dirt you’ve dug out bury you alive.
You’re sinking, running out of air
The whole world comes crashing down
on you, the person you pretend to be
but as stubborn and arrogant as before
you dig even deeper, deeper still
until you wont recognize yourself anymore
you keep a constant lie
and you won’t admit it
until you disappear
on an endless cycle toward oblivion.
It all starts with arrogance.
But to save yourself is up to you
remember that humility pulls you up
it unravels the small grain of honesty,
that which lie deep beneath the skin you wear.
humility nurtures honesty
it kills all lies, the trickery you have put yourself into will vanish
as if in a dream, you rise above yourself
and you wont even realize it
But until then, you’re trapped.
