One Mans Pride

May 13, 2008
By Jordan Forte, Draper, UT

Life’s so short, so precious, so taken for Granted
Ended by the stopping of the heart
Some ups some downs
We all live with an illusion - which is dangerous
We all trust - which is vain
We all have faith - which is childish
One moment you love, then you blink, and it’s gone
It’s inevitable that death will over come us all
Why must we speed up the process?
One mans pride, one mans hatred
Abuse, Torture, Pain, War, Death
The results of pride, and hatred
We must learn to accept
One mans pride resulted in abuse and torture
Abuse and torture resulted in war and death
War and death resulted in pain and sorrow
