~Seven Times~

Seven times have I despised my soul:

The first time when I saw her being meek that she might attain height.

The second time when I saw her limping before the crippled.

The third time when she was given to choose between the hard and the easy, and she chose the easy.

The fourth time when she committed a wrong, and comforted herself that others also commit wrong.

The fifth time when she forbore for weakness, and attributed her patience to strength.

The sixth time when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks.

And the seventh time when she sang a song of praise, and deemed it a virtue.

I am ignorant of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.

Wow! Terrific! I'm glad I stopped by to read your blog. I will take it to heart.

Oh but how she faltered in her humanity
and stained you with her absolute wretchedness ...

That she had not quite deserved that place
upon the pedestal ...

But instead, flawed and speckled
begged your forgiveness ...
