Pride

John Henry

There’s steel in my blood
Makes me stronger than iron
Bolder than any man
I have a legacy to uphold
A small nation to make proud
Sorry if I seem presumptuous
My pride
It’s driven me
And so I lay down my trail
A hammer in one hand
Faith in the other

(Inspired by the tall tale -John Henry:The Steel Driving Man )
