Earning a degree in Humility

image

Humility…

Getting the best of me.

Working against my sanity, in concert with dissension dare I mention.

Enveloping, saturating, infiltrating taking no prisoners.

Efficient, exacting and targeted in extracting a price…

Humility…

Is the tuition…

That I pay for the academia, the halls of learning…

For

the University of Life, the strife that I have endured has sometimes left me prostrate…

Crying for mercy…

Burdened 2

Cursing the studies that I’ve been burdened with.

I compel myself to grasp the material,

forging ahead; because

endurance is the segue…

To eventual triumph; undeterred and undenied.

For me victory is unequivocal.

Wielding… Striving for.

The prize, the goal, the culmination…

The end game… Before I exit stage left;

legacy will serve as my diploma, cap and gown.

Passing with flying colors; and realizing, that…

Humility…

Wasn’t a burden, but my most valuable teacher.

Let's get your 2 cents worth ...
