Accept your folly.
Accept insofar that it humbles you.
Don’t accept being vulgar and self centred,
and loving yourself is the quickest ticket there.
I know my faults well,
we’ve wrestled until our pulse is one and the same,
we’ve wrestled until both are tame.
When they rise to take control,
I’m there to shut myself down,
when I rise as if accomplished and complete,
they remind me of how lowly I am.
