I Am Proud
I am proud I'm not a Trump supporter.
And minding my own business, not like a reporter.
I've always been proud and I'm not sure why.
Sometimes I'm not sure why I even try.
I am proud that I'm Red* and Evie's kid.
I'm proud and love my grand niece Sid.
I am not comfortable saying these things aloud.
I know I have an ego, it's not that I'm proud.
I am not crazy about this task.
What were you thinking that you would ask?
I guess I don't have much to be proud of.
All that I've ever wanted is to rise above.
So to say what I am proud of.
Maybe it's my desire to truly love.
And to give everyone a fair shake.
I guess I am proud for Pete's sake.
*Red is my Dad's nickname, not red as in political. And what side of the aisle I am on is not relevant to this poem. <3 :)
