A Humble Man Poem by Joseph Anderson

A Humble Man

Rating: 4.7

Can you find a humble man,
Glad to be on God's green earth?
One who holds no greedy plan,
Knowing wealth has no true worth.

Perhaps, if you search around
You may find the one I seek;
Standing firm on shaky ground
Proud, yet modest, kind, yet meek.

If your search discovers him
Would you for a moment pause,
To lift his precious diadem
And return to me, because

I cannot find the one I seek,
Someone with a gentle plan;
Proud, yet modest, kind, yet meek;
Can you find a humble man?

Maybe, just a thought, if you have a mirror he could be in there., take care of him if he is! A wonderful poem, so well written

There aren't many of them around Thomas, but they must exist somewhere - I am sure you are one of them to possess such understanding, and to be able to produce such a wonderful poem.

Hello Joseph, It is better to be humble than proud because pride comes before a fall. A humble child taste the grace. A very good rendition of a heart warming poem. This poem was issued out of a humble heart. Appreciate the opportunity for a good read.

Such a one is extremely hard to find, Joe! But, there is hope, all things are possible with God, that’s why we must trust Him. A wonderful poem, thanks for sharing!

As we grow older Joe. the egos tend to shrink. Only a humble and gifted man could write a poem like this.
