Humility


diver

Our life blood,

really is what defines us

only if we want to

accept our frailty

rather than relish upon our

success;

those opportunities

that life’s challenges sometime

suppress.

Or do we, when caught up in

being,

ever question that reality,

that desire,

that drive,

that what is it some quest

someone yelled to me on the diving board

where’s your motivation,

just jump joker.

So I did, they didn’t, I dove, they stayed above, I swam

they watched.

Have you ever looked at the world while wading?

Underwater

figures that don’t appear real

waving before your eyes

as if

perhaps

one might decide they’re less important

figures of fantasy

having no bearing on our present

humility.

Ah, to recognize

how shallow our world can become

when ignorance decides upon our outcome.

Live strong, breathe genuine,

let the truth hurt while finding love.
