Let’s Welcome Back Humility 

Your ego needs a break

stop staring in the mirror

and taking all those selfies

for strangers. your wardrobe is

stale, humidity can be seen

on your clothes. your hands

need pens instead of those 

fake diamond rings.

check your narcissism 

at the bar of outdated dreams

writing is an amazing escape

not a word

to the neighbours

who pretend to not read your status.

please stop telling us where you ate

and how beautiful your lie is

your gray is showing

and your husband is too sweet

for your wicked party ways.

I was raised with more heart

than glamour

mended socks

home-made meals

opera singers 

so let’s welcome back


it missed you

while you were 

taking another selfie.

    or writing is a pursuit–of larger somethings–larger than selfies

        Yes, I love this, Eric! Very lovely and profound, Chrissy.:) I couldn’t agree more; there’s much too much narcissism and not nearly enough humility and compassion in the world. Let’s embrace selflessness, everyone!

    How beautiful your lie is– that’s exactly right sis. I put my honest mess right out there, it’s all I got 😉
