PRIDE


I’m not so bitter anymore
I have found someone who peeled me off the floor
I now know what it’s like to be adored
Not just ripped apart and forced out the door
Left broken and feelings sore
Always looking to be considered more
with a self image that you tore
Self confidence tarnished at the core
My character and existence was something you outwardly felt the need to deplore
I have never known love to be so hardcore

But that was before
Your acceptance is something I will no longer strive to explore
This isn’t something you can just get at a store
Pride was something you stripped from me that maybe I should have wore
Being your blood has always felt more like a chore
As I’ve been called much worse than a whore

These days, bullying is what I have no room for
As I only focus on my own happiness and continue to soar
Maybe someday our relationship will be something that you will want to restore
Just know that your hatred isn’t heard or acknowledged anymore.
Hoping we can mend what was broken before the Cold War.
Because love is all that I have acquired a taste for.
