It doesn’t seem like a deadly sin,
Not when it’s a word used to describe people who
build businesses from nothing
or compose music
or raise kids to be productive members of society.
Maybe I need a biblical refresher,
but I don’t see how it’s a sin at all.
It’s associated with hard work,
confidence and accomplishments.
Sure, someone can feel that way about the wrong things.
I suppose a murderer feels accomplished after a day’s work,
but on the whole,
I think it’s a rather positive quality.
would a pack of nature’s most regal animals
be named after a truly deadly sin?
If it’s good enough for lions,
it’s good enough for me.
