Pride

O, what is pride

That we holdeth onto it.


‘Tis as dew naked in the sunlight,

A beautified bouquet, fresh trim’d,

A flame flickering in the roaring rain..


A mere feeble flamboyance;

That withers as swiftly as breeze through our fingers..


O, what is pride

That we holdeth onto it.


-Titus Loh-

    Congrats on this awesome description of pride...we are all guilty of holding onto it at some point and describe its negative attributes so poetically. Gwendolen
