Humility - Poem by Syed Anwar Yarkhan Jilani

Humility and love are precisely the graces
That Man of understanding healthy faces.
Find occasions for practicing humbleness -
Where words and acts combine like laces.

Meekness, lowness of the heart should be
Making it object of special tradition to be.
To rise perpetually begin by descending
Lay the foundation of your tower to be.

God descends to you as water flows down
Bestow peace and riches without a frown.
The unseen gracious hand of God keeps
You afloat and shall never let you down.

The evidence of having a spiritual maturity
Is an awareness of your rational impunity.
Many hypocrites in some sense are in sight
Perhaps it was a transition to your delight.

Humility is freedom from your own ego
A de-stressing exercise devised long ago.
Confuse not fear cowardice and insecurity
As these have nothing to do with humility.

The labor of self love is a profound one
Efforts needed to protect from burning sun.
Take no delight in the vain praise of men
You are the doctor, the drug and solace.
