Subject(s): Pride; Self-esteem; Self-respect


To Pride, upon its altar, what priceless offerings we bring,
The one thing needful—fondest hopes, the cup of fragile joy,
The price of all the world—it's core, fanatically we give
To satisfy an inward lift—a sloganed, formal pose
Sheathed in the mantle of disguise,
We strive to still the heart's low cries.
