Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
Learning the hard way
"Humility" by Aussie
Of all the attributes we should have
I had to learn humility the hard way
Smart as a whip, having all the answers
I was brought down in a traffic accident

I was selfish, self-centered and intolerant
After three months in critical care
My leg amputated; my humility surfaced
No longer smart and quick witted

Cocooned and nursed for months
For the first time, not in control
A priest came by to see me daily
He taught me how to be humble

" Give way so as to conquer"
I did give way, I handed my broken body
Over to the One who could heal me
I have never had so much love and peace

Author Notes
Contest Entry for One Word Poem. Self explanatory. When we are weak, then we are strong. Holy Bible. I have never looked back, after 38 yrs, I can still walk a little. Fan- story is one of my biggest lifelines, helping other people on line. Blessings to you all.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
