Foolish Pride by Grant Harbison

Stand aside foolish pride
For thou are but a burdensome thorn in my side
A millstone designed to make fools of men
Have not thee done that time and again?
With haughty superiority
Mocking man’s inferiority
Desiring to tempt
Thine power too persuasive to pre-empt
Stand aside I say
No longer will I allow thee to sway
For I do decree
Sagaciousness shall set me free
I am who I was meant to be
And with that willingness just to be me
Nothing more and nothing less
I shall pave that road to success
