Thoughts To Ponder # 4 (Contest...) Poem by Marvin Brato Sr


I run the race
with wish to win
against the best

Many have character
others show power
I rely on humility

Character breaks when provoked
and power is lost when over ruled
but humility stands against all odds

At the end of obstacles
true humility can prevail
when character and power fail
