Humble Lesson

I confess,
and have contrition. 
I’ve not been, 
in submission.

I’ve tried to do things,
with my own hands. 
By my strength,
I’ve worked to stand.

Thus I earned,
what I could not afford. 
Better to wait, 
on the Lord.

Who planned success,
before I began.
Who sought,
to raise, 
a humble man.
