May be someday I’ll learn to
take a bow and kneel down,
but today is not the day.
Humility is not in town
and has gone astray.
And in my defiant defense
I wish to reign supreme, hence
it’s my aim is what I can say;
Word “sorry” is a pathetic misery,
it’s never my idea of luxury.
Humility is a humble virtue,
she preys on those innocent
most miserable kinds.
If you are in doubt she can sting
and really come at you.

Humility is a forgotten virtue,
Out dated and outmoded ;
To today’s generation it’s a mystery,
That will be required to be decoded!
Thank you, I agree with what you expressed so eloquently. Although It wasn’t plea for humility. Too much humility is dangerous too…
Good one ☝🏻 on point!
Thank you very much I’m glad, my words resonated.
I like your attitude; your poem absolutely bristles; it does not turn the other cheek !
I feel like Devil today and yes I do have a little bit of attitude. I believe humility is too overrated and times can be hurtful.
I fully agree; your poem bristles with attitude: that’s why I like it–
Little attitude is never out of fashion…
I agree with you dear Tanya. There are times in life where we have to be bold and act. Humility is not to be served to everyone.
