Learning the hard way


by Aussie

One Word Only Contest Winner 
Of all the attributes we should have
I had to learn humility the hard way
Smart as a whip, having all the answers
I was brought down in a traffic accident

I was selfish, self-centered and intolerant
After three months in critical care
My leg amputated; my humility surfaced
No longer smart and quick witted

Cocooned and nursed for months
For the first time, not in control
A priest came by to see me daily
He taught me how to be humble

" Give way so as to conquer"
I did give way, I handed my broken body
Over to the One who could heal me
I have never had so much love and peace
