Room for God

Room for God

Humility is hard to come by ...
(and I have so much to be humble about).

A toothless lion -- pride; a gnawing rat.
Brave men have no pride;

even a humble man's courage
is not there when grasped;

a humble man --  he's no hero ... nor saint. 
Humility and its poverty

leave room for nothing else
except, maybe, God

to enter when the walls are rubble,
where a man stands

naked and armless, without pride or courage.
Then, maybe, there's room for God.

O child of God, Meher's love, so freely given,
apparently, demands every last thing in return.
