- My Pride - Poem by Ronberge (anno primo)

My pride is my soul
My soul immortal
Break this body
I’ll not ask for mercy
Even undone
I kneel to no one
The only
and one

Make me cry?
I’d rather Die
Nothing is worth begging for
Not money
Not fame
Not hunger
Not love
Not life

I will not bow
I will no break
Everything you throw
I’ll take

In my book
If you have no pride
You’re not worth knowing!

My pride
My savior
Makes me a god of thunder
The worlds most extraordinary lover
The deepest thinker
Most profound feeler
No one is my match
No one is my equal
I pity those who are not me
They will never know what it’s like
To take life in
With pure greed

Be you mighty
Or meek
Despair and envy me
Look unto me and dream
Of what you could be

For my pride is there
To guide me
To remind me
There is no one greater in this world
Than me
I am almighty
Let the humble bow
I’ll not

When I meet my maker
I will stand before him
And look at his glory
And take my pride
And say ‘look upon it! ’
‘Isn’t it a worthy trophy? ’
‘Is love of my accomplishments
My passing of time
My triumphs
My errors
My glory
Mine crime? ’

Is pride truly the greatest sin?
Did it not save me countless times.
Kept me standing where others fell?
Made decisions my very own?
The essence of individuality
In Escaping conformity?

If asked to part
I’ll say nay
‘Saying but you made me this way! ’
And go my own way
Not entering another’s HIS domain
I’ll have my pride as companion
Always by my side

No one will get the better of me
Not while my pride holds me
For am I not unlike God
Made in his own image?
