I Have My Pride

I'm rich, wealthy,
beautiful and have plenty.
When they slander me,
I backbite them,
because I have my pride.
When they punch me,
I punch and kick them back,
because I have my pride.
But when I saw
that little boy
tired, hungry, and cold,
I sat down beside him,
and offered comfort,
because that could've been me.
I could have been poor,
ugly and hungry.
So I realize
that sometimes
I can sacrifice my pride.
Who cares if I'm pretty,
rich or famous,
because what matters
is who I am,
on the inside.
