WHY NOT HUMILITY?

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

 

Why not be humble at all moments

Of association with fellowmen?

Didn’t the shopworker teach you

That one rudiment of survival

Is the intelligent recognition

Of your limitations’ omnipresence

Inspite of endowments of craft & wealth?

For there too are circumstances

That are beyond you grasps

In the snares of Naivete

And may even cause a furor

Of gig and limitless giggle?

For Boastfulness and Arrogance

Are twin eagles of deception

That once they’d lift you aflight

They’d shake you off the winds to crash

Tragically on the solid ground

Of defeat and humiliation?

 

O! Humility!

You are a noble messenger

That speaks for transparent Security

One that makes a person immensely cherished

By the commonwealth of all men.

 

 

[Writ. 05 June 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila]

From up Himalayas’ etheric space

With Light beings attending in sessions

Called forth by World Teachers we

Are as salts of the Earth

 

Brought forth to bring Light Above

Unto eager souls awaiting release

From encumbrances with ignoble Ignorance

Veils upon their eyes concealing truths

 

Likewise now am I decided anew

To re-enter the university’s august halls

There to rendezvous with sublime starseeds

Harbingers of the noblest goal of nirvana

 

A commitment to the Holy Cause

I’m coming back to sublime academia

Impeccable den of truth and wisdom

I’ve come back regained in strength

Will and inspiration fro the Heavens
