Pride is a layered virtue
owned by several with great value;
Visitations to the land of pride
is oft spoken with a sizeable appetite!
But rarity is that quality
that takes pride in honesty.
Pride in honesty?
Oh! what a defunct thought!
Though not a dysfunctional thought!
‘Cause its frontiers are timeless
like the skyline, it’s immaculately limitless.
In the cemetery of my mind
I visualize and find,
the face that was once grazed
by pride’s ageless grace.
He was a man of humble beginnings
overflowing honesty with all its trappings;
He had a sumptuous gait
as if the sun was his mate;
His resounding laughter
had the innocence of a rivery banter;
His work took him to his stars
to his content and contented stars;
His friends his treasure
they were his sole pleasure;
His bold eyes reflected only “You”
that made his face glitter
with a gold like hue.
And so I ask…
“Where do you reside O’ honest pride?”
“It is in the travails of life
that you’ll find my kind,
like the clear stream of Beatitude I flow
like the golden sunlit sky I glow,
my crystalline azure blue
always reflect everlasting truths.
The journey through my life
is a cultivating ride,
that creates “Me”…
the spectacular honest pride!
you’ve distanced me
to that faraway land,
like a mirage
I now live in the no-man’s-land!!
But I’m the scintillating sun!
Time and again I flash my face
for you to relish the pun;
Oh yes there are a score
who embrace me from head to toe
in every sense comprehending,
the perils of that telltale “foe”!”
