My Pride And Honour - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

My pride

I was simple and straight
But I had to wait
For my intention
As I was unable to mention correctly

People took me by default
Even though I was not at all at fault
But I cared less
And eventually faced the wrath on face

But I contended
And never offended
Any person who had even erred
But sincerely apologized

This kind of handling matter
In a cool manner
Made people take me earnestly
And never contest bitterly

I had no self-interest
So served them best
Tool no grudge or insult to stride
It never hurt my pride

    But I contended
    And never offended
    Any person who had even erred
    But sincerely apologized
    - A very candid expression reflected through this amazing poem
