Modesty

Writer wants to
write a song
The song disagrees
It won’t come on
a piece of paper
For a mere mortal
Wants to be a
missive from the king
On adorned gold leaf,
Written with blood of heroes
Etched with sword of courage
It is so fond of itself
Little narcissist
With so many meanings
Dancing and preening
Then the lightening strikes
writer’s mind wanders
to a beautiful poem
dancing in the rain
has a humming lullaby
Tune so soft
Words with grace
natural and pure
Doesn’t pretend
Humble beginning
Amazing end
poet likes it
Ditches the song
arrogance
kept it alive
But not for long!!

  1. ah, it is interesting to discover how a word (such as your title) can have so many different meanings and emotions attached to it. My first reaction to modesty is always a negative one, until one looks closer at that word. It does not always have to mean restriction, but can also mean humility, or how you expressed it in your poem, thank you for making me think. Blessings!
