Humility's Seeds

Humility's seeds

are sown in horror,

in stomachs refusing to eat,

in hearts refusing to hope

in minds refusing release

from the terror

of wrongs which cannot be undone.

Humility's seeds

spread roots

in souls tilled by torment

in nights turning sleepless

in flight seeking cover

from the shame

of trust which cannot be regained.
