Beneath Our Pride
There is something I want to say.
Something I’ve always wanted to say but never could.
It’s hard to say, even if I want to, even if I should.
There are three words I’ve always wanted to say,
Three words I never understood.
Three words always lingering in the back of my mind,
Lurking in places I don’t ever want to find.
But now they’ve risen to the surface,
And they’re filling my chest with guilt and dread.
I feel it in my chest, in my stomach, in my head.
All emotions are boiling up inside me,
Emotions I’ve always tried to hide.
I know what I have to do,
But I don’t know if I can overcome my pride.
I want to say it before it’s too late,
Before it’s all gone too far.
No one knows how to say these words,
But everyone knows what they are.
They’re the three words,
The ones we bury beneath our pride.
The ones we bury with our emotions,
The ones we're so desperate to hide.
Three words... here we go.
I am sorry.
Now you know.
