genius humility

by joyouscellyjc

I look out the window sill

I feel it in my veins

I keep going but still

I never reach the end of the lanes

the soft caress of my mothers warm palm

I shall never forget in my soul

these truths that I hold ,like the calm

before the storm rolls

my pen so smooth and swift ,gliding over the crumpled paper

my heart in a mighty lift, gets lifted into a vapour

until I reach far beyond the surface and into the depths

of my soul

I surrender ,I surrender to this form of self discovery

I still try to grasp the idea that like tender dew

slips between my fingers

that like the loose end of a brocade worn by a woman

at the sea, the pale blue mantle

now will you say I am a genius ?

if you shall,I shall not,I shall not

i shall deny

you know why?

for the sake of humility , my dear...
