There Is Nothing Like Keeping It Humble

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

What do you have to say to those,
Who have had their valuables, treasures...
And other possessions,
From them taken away?

'It must be devastating,
To have pretentions repossessed.
Especially those others thought own and kept,
To have noses turned up when the ones with less...
Are now asked to express an empathy.'

So what is it you wish to say?

'Personally? '


'There is nothing like keeping it humble.'
