  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.

*An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.
