Righteous and Proud (1973)

Righteous and Proud 

by Marc Mangel

To be righteous and to be proud are indeed

such high virtues for they

build from softness into the

true character. Yet like

all those things of

goodness they are but small

and pinpoiints surrounded by

the wholeness of evil.

Too often the path is slippery and

slides into evil

for to be selfrighteous and too proud

to believe a failing

are the marks of the best

of those who too quickly tried to rise

so in the softness of true good

try to being again

less righteous

less proud

but better

 

March 1973
