Of Pride

Everybody's got another piece of advice. Another saying to set me in place. Another word of wisdom.

Chin up. Walk forward. Be proud.

 My chin is up, but my eyes can't help but be steely with hurt.

I walk forward, but I can't help but hear the past call my name.

And pride? Pride doesn't keep me company. It's hardly enough to get me to sleep.
