Pride

Pride is killing me
Pushing me to misery
Choking potential out of my ability
Driving me crazy
With thoughts of quitting
Feeling fearful of revealing
The art I’m creating
Finding myself on the edge
Of just giving
Up, my pride is wrecking me
Crashing through my hopes
Burning down my dreams
Thousands of pages, millions of words
Begging release, yet it seems
I cannot speak
Up, Seeking approval
Wondering what will be enough
To scourge out this pride
Lingering in my throat, stuck
If I reach back within myself
Will I be devoured by ego
Or will I pull out the volition
To swallow
My pride
