I have no need
on bended knee
to plead my cause to God above
for all He does
approved or not, by me,
my Father does with love.
So as I kneel
if I could learn
that time was made abundantly
in life, in time,
my Father knows what’s best for me.
So when I plead
an earthly cause
I have no need to want control.
A willing heart,
and trusting faith,
will bring me closer to my goal.

Today I will believe in who I am
for I have become some
of everything I want to be.
A little more patient.
A little more kind.
A little less likely to believe the worst.
I am not perfect
nor am I profound
but joyously I have discovered
that I am me.

What is learned respect for earned humility?
The natural feeling of grateful reflection of another trial overcome?
I, too, have been humbled by the enormous
but I have failed to respect the provoked devotion
one must have to bow beneath lesser trials.
It is easy to comfort oneself after the big mountains
saying, “Look, all I had to overcome!”
But maybe in reverence we should bow our hearts,
even in an exhausted plea for comfort,
for those trials of a lesser degree,
those problems of every day,
and then experience true humility.
