A Lowly King

It is most humbling, in the humblest way,
To see the power in every word I say.
To think not so lowly of myself,
But not to think I deserve my shelf.

It is not to live in a lowly way,
but not to assume, and not to say
That I am any less than myself.
Knowing God is always greater than want and wealth.

It is to recognize that the flower is just as pretty in dirty hands as clean. That there are no hands which deserve to hold the flower anyway.  That there is no man who deserves even the facility of hands.
