Arrogance Immunity

Here comes arrogance again,

slipping into our conversation

like bacteria on a sneeze,

threatening to strangle

my humble light of being.

The challenge is to continue talking,

without letting it infect me.

My soul gives yours a wink,

understanding that compassion

is the antibody.

Wow Dorothy, thank YOU for your beautiful feedback. You took the poem to a whole new level. I appreciate you! I love that Elvis video too. When I was a little girl, I used to try to sing and move like him. I thought I could be the first female Elvis impersonator when I grew up! ?

A beautiful song to start this lovely day....thank you for this song....?

A meaningful poem, deep, intense, succinct and piercing the dark human soul, enlightens the mind and making us HUMAN in the real sense of being one. Thank you!!

This poem needs to be published, circulated and read out loud!!

May the humanity within us live long and strong, it will surely make our homes, work places, neighborhoods, country n yes our world a much peaceful n better place to live in.

God bless you immensely for this.?

Today seems to be a spiritual awakening day....i have the spirit waking within me too....may it be contagious and passes through to everyone....Good way to start the day?

Thanks Po. I sometimes feel as though I've survived a couple lifetimes in this one! I am fascinated by reincarnation. I sure hope we take wisdom from one lifetime to the next. Namaste my friend. ?
