Pride - The Master Of Disguise - Poem by Peter Hall

Depression is pride
Why aren't I perfect?
I am better than this,

Self hatred is pride
I have fallen short
My standards are higher than this! .

Self depreciation is pride
I'm too stupid
How did I ever do that! ,

Victimization is pride
In trying to find good
I have just found the bad.

Being offended is pride
How dare they say that
Don't they know who I am? ,

Self defence is pride
I'm better than you
You owe me another chance.

Being negative is pride
Obsessed by my failures
Doesn't make me so wise,

Selfishness is pride
And all these things
Have proven a master of disguise.
