Humility is the result of gratitude
for things great and small
And to see how small one is
In the face of great things
To realize that you may think
That you have earned things.
Only to develop the wisdom
That fate allowed you to “earn” them
To realize that all your positive traits
Are vanity until they benefit others.
And that kindness is the crown worn by humility.
To realize that you are finite in the face of infinite things
And that in being finite, each of your minutes has meaning.
The secret is that fate humbles
Those who lack humility
And it exalts the humble.
