Everyone Needs It - Poem by Francis Duggan

Everyone needs it in moderation this thing known as pride
Though many behind it their insecurities does hide
And most people in some sort of a way can be insecure
And this even applies to the purest of the pure
It is true about pride it can come before a fall
And though this goes for many it does not go for all
In everyone's feelings pride does not take toll
Some does seem to have it well under control
They are siblings in some ways vanity, pride and conceit
And all are present where people do meet
Though a few near to perfect to be flawed is to be human we ought not to forget
The perfect human being has not been born as of yet
Pride in moderation is quite okay
That we all need a little of it does seem true to say.
