Hush Money

by jacebre

Hush Money

I must swallow my pride 

Snatch it by its long hair kicking and screaming

Force it down my throat 

watch it Fighting It's way 

back into my thoughts

It's g o n e
now. 
I'm aware that I'm wrong
This lie that you've been trying to prolong
Are you aware of my weakness?
Can my submission be seen? 
I am only a child. 
These lies bearing down on my soul
I have a secret.

If you are talking to money, who is the "it" in the poem?

    Thanks for the comment
    Smile
    But The poem isn't about money
    Its based upon the secret
    But the "it" at the beginning
    of the poem was referring to my pride
