OUT OF ARROGANCE

Arrogance–
the deep-seated
human error
that occurs
when we ignore
the Universe’s
wise, old order. . .

It is a way
we may earn much,
of money, dirt,
pretty friends
with whom to flirt,
and lots of other stuff–

but a way,
which, in the end,
just does not pay–
and one day,
finally, we’ll see,
that way, we’ll never have enough. . .

Then will comes the time
from our tunnel vision
me-in-gradiosity-fixation
to wrest ourselves,

and then,
to look
+++++around,
and maybe even
+++++up,

if, at all, we can,
to let us see
the clear direction
that we can turn our pivot,

then, in humility
+++++to act
+++++to give,
+++++believe
++++++++++in the power of serving
++++++++++with graciousness, civility,
and begin to forge
+++++a new reality
+++++that feels as good
+++++as a perfect, comfy glove,
+++++for it is rooted mighty deep,
+++++and branches broad
+++++in everlasting love.
