Y.... Hard Is The Fall - Poem by Aufie Zophy

Wise persons tend to be really humble ones
No matter how wise or what they have done
They tend to realize their limitations

But oh, how difficult it can be
To maintain our humility
Challenges are often so plenty

Any achievement, be it professional
Material or educational
Religious or recreational

All are pushing us into a feeling of superiority
Yes here we are, here are we, look at me
Look at me, I am better than you, really!

We stand tall on this high and narrow pedestal
We feel superior, better than all
But invariably, hard is the fall.

Poise, humility
Modesty, humbleness, humility…

    I am reminded of a wonderfully funny song called 'Oh Lord it's hard being Humble, when you're perfect in every way! ' sung by Mac Davis. (Report) Reply

    As long as we stay sober within sanity we will always be guided by humility....whatever it is, it exist in each person we only need to use mind because that's the level that humility has compare to other creation level ability...I know it's hard to be wise because of many challenges, but if we can have it in most time mean we are having the best wise level...the harder the wiser it ranked but it be more difficult to attain... but at least we must try to maintain what we can _Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
