The Pride of False Humilty

So much of kingdom life
is upside-down,
Seeing right in what
once passed for wrong,
Before I saw through
His eyes.

Silent conversations
demeaning self;
Focusing on faults and failures;
Denying His truth of
fearfully and wonderfully made.
Hoping, somehow, for approval
in the groveling.

I call it humility,
this putting down of self.
He calls it pride.
