Let us be humble.

63) You Man

You man...
Who think you are powerful and got might.
Stand upon the mountains you will be small.
Dive into seas you will find yourself a dot.
Fly in the sky you would weigh less than a cloud.
Walk in the desert, you can't compete its hot sands.

You man...

Who believes your voice can shake lands.
Listen to the lightening, your ears will collapse.
Hear the waves, detect their high tide, you can't.

You man....
No matter how strong you are,
No matter how much you have, and
No matter how equipped you think you are;
There are things stronger than you,
Higher than you,
And bigger than you
So have some modesty and live without pride.

Hi Amanda, this is wisdom!
Yes, there are thigs stronger then us, like fate, like nature, like chance happenings...
One must never be proud!

((Hugs for the wise write)))

If there is such a thing as wisdom, I think it must be based on placing ourselves, individually and collectively, in perspective... Well said!
