Humility Balance


If I become overconfident, I will recall my failures.
If I overindulge, I will think of past hungers.
If I feel complacency, I will remember my competition.
If I enjoy moments of greatness, I will remember moments of shame.
If I feel all powerful, I will try to stop the wind.
If I attain great wealth, I will remember one unfed mouth.
If I become overly proud, I will remember a moment of weakness.
If I feel my skill is unmatched, I will look at the stars.

Today I will be master of my emotions.

There is eloquence in simplicity,

And strength as well.
