Humility

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself,

it is thinking of yourself less”. C.S Lewis.

 

Pride is the antithesis of humility-

delusion’s own prize relic.

Humility cowers between

amour-propre’s punches of asperity,

throwing him in the sea of conformity.

 

Humility advocates for appreciation

and respect for the human condition.

Ignites the fire of simplicity amid

complexity.

Heals humanity’s  braggadocio.

Keeping you warm through the

chaotic world.

 

Humility allows honesty to radiate

from ruins.

Offers generosity, alleviation and

compassion with no ill intentions of

vainglory.

Allows the essence of clemency and

apology to shine without advocating

for great obsequiousness- leaving you

barren of recognition but with a

better appreciation and understanding

of another person’s  worth.

 

Humility is an adjuration of ardor.

A haven where infamy is considered

sacred.

A reality where one doesn’t project his

own thoughts, opinions and beliefs

on others but accepts them with

their flaws.

A truth that you’re not greater than

anyone – or beyond the strings of

admonishment or plain criticism.

 

Humility is self restraint from

vanity’s seductive embrace.

Not devoid of your own modesty.

Laying down bashfully; abasing yourself.

Submitting to God and to others for

God’s sake.

 

Stay humble.

You’re only human.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
