No Pity

 

I am a very proudful person, she said

So much so, that I have lost my sight.

Now, as I stumble in the darkness

I wonder: what good is this silly pride

I cling to?  The bruises on my heart

and on my body are not badges

Of honour, they mark me as a fool.

I, who would not bend

Am broken.  Had only my hearing

also been taken I would

Not have to suffer your pity.

      thank you — I had this vision of an older woman — you know one of those people on the peripherals who seems so unapproachable, but who obviously needs contact? anyway, glad it came across!
