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.
