My Poems  

Humble Pie

An acrostic* by Beverly Stock.

Humility, you level my ego.

Under your spell, my words are more grateful.

My self worth is strong yet evenly tempered.

By Learning from you, I have a better soul.

Like you, I exercise dignity.

Everyday, I celebrate modesty.

Please hold me steadfast.

Invest in my appreciation.

Every day offered, I’ll celebrate.
