humility got a bad rap

humility got a bad rap,
it seemed too close
to weakness.

the ego didn’t understand
its great benefits.
all it saw was the spectre
of its own death,
and thus humility
was cast into the wilderness.

only the wise
can be humble,
only one who
understands love
and the eternal
can whisper softly.

humility is great strength,
and the peaceful pacifier
of conflict
and war.

but it got a bad rap
and now no-one even talks
about it.
