Humility Is (New Poem by Polly Castor)

Humility is poem by Polly Castor

Humility is

bending without breaking
greatness yielding graciously
poise while being tested
power deferring strength
wisdom separated from ambition
unfoldment bearing fruit
patience content to be prompt
love devoted to service
confidence awaiting instruction
justice focusing on evidence
gentleness having an effect
duty fulfilling responsibility
unselfishness honoring others
goodness seeking guidance
freedom paying its debts
mercy collaborating with compassion
meekness trouncing egotism
purity rebuking conceit
simplicity defeating pomposity
gratitude instead of criticism
effort for the benefit of others
reformation lacking condemnation
transparency void of fear
excellency not needing recognition
sun amplified by clouds or haze
steadfastness unthreatened
loyalty unshaken
unconditional blessing
contemplation of infinitude.
