Five-Parts Pride

Too proud to admit

loneliness; just me, my soul

neither here nor there.

* * *

Too proud to complain.

How to relinquish the pain

I am and am not

* * *

Humility bared

ere I go before the fall

haughty spirit stilled

* * *

What was, now is 

 pile of dead bones

and my soul

“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall”. Proverbs 16:18

Deepest depths

laughter and pain

 all I am

Haiku-Heightsprompt, Pain

prompt, PRIDE

  1. “Too proud to complain”

    Not my grandma! I remember sitting in her kitchen as a child, when when Whitey, one of her long-time friends came to the door. “How ya doin’, Ann?” he boomed. Immediately my grandmother launched into a long litany of woes, mostly involving aches and pains. Nope, she wasn’t too proud to complain!

    No Pride of Lions


  2. “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall”. Proverbs 16:18
    That was my first thought when I saw the prompt.
    My pride in Haiku is still waiting to come out…
    you said a lot that hit home…
    Pride certainly has ruled my life…
    Thanks for the eye opener.
