Pride

by Frank Hubeny

Rebelliousness will find its fall.
Self-righteousness will show the way
deceived deceivers go astray.
They think they’ve won, but lost it all.

On wayward paths some hear His call
and follow giving up their pride.
The faithless seek a place to hide.
The leaves descend upon the land
and snowy winter takes a stand.
The warmth’s for those who went inside.


Ronovan Hester offers the rhyme word “pride” to be used in a C line of a decima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC for this week’s challenge.
