Pride Is A Thing

The words of a wise person i do recall
Pride is a thing that comes before a fall
Too proud to accept help when of helping in need
Pride it can be self defeatist indeed
Pride can be of the weak not of the strong
Too proud to admit it when you are wrong
In many ways similar to arrogance it does seem
Proud people never victims of low self esteem
The look of pride on the beaming face
Of the proud winner of the big foot race
Yet pride does not relish the taste of defeat
And from the mind makes a hasty retreat
Pride has been known to come before a fall
But what applies to some does not apply to all.
