You’ll See It When You Choose To


See the antique not the attic,

See the actor not the role.

See the one who decides

embracing others’ greatness close

is more valuable than one’s own,

and lays it aside to make it happen.

Anyone willing to lay down his/her own greatness

for others’ to be grown

never carried it in a pocket

nor wore it like a cloak;

If his/her greatness is diminished in any way

by the greatness of others,

S(he) never really had any greatness

of which to boast.


How has this impacted your thinking on the matter?
