Waking up daily
A prisoner
A prisoner inside my own mind
Afraid of stepping on people’s ego
For fear that they will not accept me for me
Piling up pent up feelings
They burst out
Thinking not about my actions
Just releasing the pent up stress
Now look at the mess
That I have created
All because I let my feelings get jaded
Yes, pride is what got in the way
Tossing all bad feelings aside
Oops!  It slipped
Slip of my tongue
I could not hold
This drama has left me in the cold
Like the prisoner I am
On cots made of steel
Apologies that may not even be for real
All for pride
Pride I say
Convicted and tried
I am a prisoner for the day
