BLANK NOTHINGNESS

Humbled and Ashamed, Learning to Be Teachable The Hard Way

By BigPicture | Al Pal | 27 Apr 2021


My deficits perceived

By my fallible mind

My own standards

I create and apply

 

Reproach I despised

It let to demise

Because according to me

I'm doing just fine

 

Slowly I encounter

Challenges rise

My behaviors fail me

It led to demise

 

I lose all my assets

I lose my career

When the stakes were high

No one accommodated, my ridiculous mien

 

When your desperate

An on the brim of homelessness

You learn to disarm

Your prideful ways

 

I believed I was right

I ignored teaching

My sight became blind

As I entered the market

Where the stakes, affect lives

 

I am humbled

I am ashamed

I am glad I was called out

This prevented more shame

That was to come, at this trajectory
