You may deter,
You may delay,
but you will not steal the dreams I dreamed
before this drill―A ridiculous ordeal
I set down my pride
& everything pure
and many things never seen
to save my children from horrible scenes
So they could see wonderful things
That only I have dreamed
Your little ride
To boost your pride
Will not be allowed on the other side
Maybe you prefer to stay behind
And play your stupid little games
BUT YOU WILL NOT STOP THE DREAMS I DREAM
2 Kings 19:22, NIV
Who is it you have ridiculed and blasphemed? Against whom have you raised your voice and lifted your eyes in pride? Against the Holy One of Israel!
Philippians 4:8, NIV
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Proverbs 16, NIV
17 The highway of the upright avoids evil;
those who guard their ways preserve their lives.
18 Pride goes before destruction,
a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed
than to share plunder with the proud.
