Humility

I looked wistfully for a white flag waving over the ramparts of the fortress
which has become my heart, in self defense how easily we all learn
to justify our cruelty as we go through life lying
sometimes flying, sometimes walking
sometimes barely crawling but we
go on for as long as we can
with our scrapping and our
brawling and our bawling
and our self deception
the lucky ones of us
learn humility but
most do not and
how I admire
the humble
the ones
who
know
the more
they know
the less they know
it is the ones who claim
to know everything who frighten me
the most and so all you with silver spoons
in your mouths who never earned your wealth
and privilege I can only offer my sincerest wishes
that life will teach you humility before your souls be lost forever
