Stubborn Pride

Of all the emotions you should hide
Is there one greater than your pride
Too often you let it bring about pain
When really you have so little to gain.

You can work to build up a trust
But sharing an honesty is a must
So if you can’t get past distractions
There are only negative reactions.

Maybe you feel you are too weak
Too confused to write or to speak
You hold it in so others must guess
Wondering if secrets you possess.

Finally it all becomes just too much
And things just seem out of touch
Friends might just run and hide
As a result of this stubborn pride.

    AHH! Pride. Such a flaw. My stubborn pride stems from some sort of weird ultra-competitive jealousy I still can’t completely wrap my head around. It nearly destroyed my relationship with my brother, and has been the root cause of many missed connections, lost friendships… I wish I could “like” this poem twice, it is so very true.
