Catechesis In Vita

I thought myself

The handsomest

Above all else

The smartest

 

Swimming in arrogance

Bathing in vanity

With greatness blessed

Genius insanity

 

My lesson to fall

Fail and crumble

Hitting the wall

Now low and humble

 

Nothingness a gift

Pride a curse

Ignorant bliss

Delusion worse

 

Grateful the process

Found new life

Understanding the test

Failure in stride

 

Anonymous me

Ambition’s antidote

Abandoning greed

Aimlessly remote

 

Enough to live

All we need

Love and give

Feel and feed

 

Purpose learned

Fulfilled inside

Soul unburned

My spirit thrives

 

Praising God

Action and thought

Staff and rod

A fool was taught
