Expelling pride

After Philippians 2:1-4

It is a cancer, this thing
called pride, a cancer
eating away at the body,
consuming healthy cells
and organs, choking off
life, because that is what
it’s called to do,
take a life.
destroy a life,
obliterate a life.
Its cure, sometimes
painful, always a hard,
different thing, is
oneness, or being 
of the same mind, having
and sharing the same love,
existing in one accord,
a unity not possible
without oneness of Spirit.
