Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Poem: Failures of Self-Righteousness
The primary failure of…
self-righteousness is that
you become your own god;
besides fouling true Faith,
you’ll never walk in Love,

since you’ll be the center
of a personal firestorm;
you’ll choose to manipulate
others for satisfaction or
gain; as a human tormentor,

you’ll never possess a peace
that’s real or everlasting.
All attributes of character
and humility will dissipate;
unable to discover a release

from Life’s miseries, you’ll
become so isolated, that the
numbness of your spirit will
unwittingly beckon Death’s
realm to be… the solitary fuel

of your own destruction.

Author notes

Inspired by:
Isa 64:6; 2 Tim 4:3-4; Rom 1:28-32 and

Trying to establish a righteousness
of your own, will pollute your walk
with God. -Rabbi K.A. Schneider
