“Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.”
~ Proverbs 16:18, ESV
Four-inch heels fail to catch foothold
on this slippery slope.
Ego, in the guise of “confidence,” poisons.
Puffed-up, I am deflated, punctured–
hot air rushing out in bellows.
Shame’s a harsh slap to this thick cheek.
Bitter’s the flavor of humble pie.
