There's been a few times
I had to eat humble pie.
I've grown accustomed to the idea that
what I seemed adamant about isn't important now.
What do you base your life on
when there is no steady horizon?
when change is the only thing that's certain
and things can alter instantly.
I cut myself another slice of humble pie
it looks like cheesecake with jelly. (Not my favorite.)
Still I can eat it because I know I have to
and it doesn't affect my dna.
I appreciate your wisdom and calories.
May you fill me up and keep me modest.
With a cherry on top.
