Pride

Strong, independent woman
She walks with herself
on the tightrope of life
Cautious of
the conformity within
Etching her way
to create her own
Stubbornly consoled
in the ease of a solitary being
She vows to take the struggles alone
Frustrations jump to greet her
staring her down
facing these new challenges
She is told she needs someone with her
Fear awakens within her soul
Too tenacious to ask
for the help of another
Her biggest fault
To the untrained eye
Her pride
Substance of life
holding no threat to the mind’s
resistance
The biggest battle
coming from within
It will meet her in the end
as the greatest challenge
To succeed
Her pride must never win

    As you walk along with outstretched arms you never know what or who you may touch to stay balanced.

  8. There is much to be said for pride, because it is the first cousin of confidence.

  9. There is nothing wrong with pride as long as it is not coupled with arrogance. Lovely poem.
