Injured pride

We are proud of what we know
Proud of what we have achieved
We boast with pride
Woe betide anyone who hurts that pride
We react hurt
We strike back
Without realising
That pride is a relative of our ego

When we put pride aside
We become humble
Begin to understand
What hurts us and why
Is a bitter medicine
To break through the armour of our pride

Are we ready for it?
Are we ready to look beyond ourselves?
Instead of clinging to pride?
