Teetering on the tall Pedestal

White pride
racial pride
sexual pride
lay it aside-
what is worth celebration
lest you fall
from your tall, pedestal, of-
why should you ride on the shoulders of those
who spoke out, who changed things
who took the blows delivered by societies dictates
why should anyone be proud of a natural state?
achievement alone is worthy of pride
personal achievment, first hand not third, man-
woman or child, black white or otherwise
straight gay or whatever, if  you win the to fight to survive
or to be recognised
then know pride, otherwise
reconsider your position
consider, for a moment, is your pride
your right?
