Our Faithful Companion

“I am not that thing to hate

I am not the thing you were told

To fear and loathe, of all things

I am just a part of the others,

Self-Confidence, Contentment, these

are the things that I am.  Not the evil,

Not the horrible things you were told.

I am assuredness, quiet, peace, nobility,

I am servitude, I am humility, I am all

Things that you want.  I am not haughty,

That was a poor lie about me.  It hurt me,

I did not crush in return, that is a sin,

I did not flounder, that is weakness,

I stood with my head high and ignored,

The slander and reproach on my being.

I am not those horrible things.  I am,

I am a part of you that you love,

That you need more than you know.

I am part of everything else you love,

about yourself in the daylight and at

Nighttime when the air grows cold,

Or close, and fear tries to make you

Give in to other things, become

something you will hate later.

I am you.  I am your friend.

I am part of everything you love.

I am everything you love.

I am Pride.”
