Pride is to not confide
what slides around inside that mind
lest others judge
the sludge and slurry
squishing
from side to side
when life is spent
in dread of pending doom.

Pride is when we never trust
in others as we hit the ground
crawling
in case they say to
pull yourself together, fool.

Pride is
to lie in hiding by the trackside
for night to fall
so never meet the driver's eyes.
