Pride

by Robert Gould

I tried and failed
to apply the veil
and finally choose a side,

I’ve done all I can
to create a man
that no labels could divide.

Those who know me best
would love me less
if I suddenly found Pride.

With a ploy to bribe
those within your tribe,
it’s strange the gap can feel so wide.
