Ode to Self


Oh thank the Lord for making me flawless

in a way that I understand I am a flawed human being.

With that I cover my path with humility

for you have revealed to me the wisdom that "so the last will be the first,".

And in the humility bears a confidence

that should not be mistaken with the irony of arrogance.

Instead, it is the faith I have in you to walk in modesty

yet, still be able to feel contentment and blessed without a luxury.

Hence, the best in me may not be a word of "lifting" related

albeit, its quality is of the highest one can achieve: humility.
