Pride

Pride

A Poem by StormeLight

I was everything to me
I meant so much to me
I thought I was creating
My very own destiny
Then I lost control
Everything came crumbling down
I had no idea that I was living
Such a crazy damn lie
I bent over my sobbing tears
Collapsed on that floor
With an aching that was no longer
Possible to ignore
Possible to ignore
I expected your judgement to hurt me
But it's healing me
Saving me from the lie of my own pride
Dependence was a curse upon my life
I tried so hard to outrun it
I guess I was relying on the wrong things
The entire time
The entire time
The entire time
I didn't want you to save my life
I wanted to die
I prayed to you God
Please God,
Don't make me live through this
I'm dying on the inside
Dying on the inside
Please, God, take my life
Don't make me live
To watch the world around me
Fall apart
You never tried to stop me
From crying until I couldn't cry anymore
I felt your heart suffering with mine
I felt you feel me,
Dying on the inside
You sent your Angels to my side
My life started new
When your love saved my life
From the inside
