How High is Your Pride?

How high is your pride?
To sacrifice for your love
How high is your pride?
To make someone see you
How high is your pride?
To pursue someone do something
How high is your pride?
To achieve your own goal

Will you throw everything
And take any risk
Will you erase your shame
And do any silly task
Will you give something precious
And leave you weak
Will you break any rule
And turn everybody into enemy

Will you regret it later?
Because your love is gone
Will you regret it later?
Because happiness only a moment
Will you regret it later?
Because it doesn’t make any different
Will you regret it later?
Because your victory wine tastes bitter

How high is your pride, my dear?

    Nice poem. Pride can blemish the best of persons and most any well-meaning intentions. There is much truth in this uniquely structured poetic work. Thanks for sharing.

    I have two poems about Pride. 'Pride' and 'Pride, My Friend' you may find them of interest. Thanks. (Report) Reply
