Why Such Accolades?

Why heap upon me such undeserved accolades in shades of praise,

When this man is but man, and just as imperfect in all his ways?

Does this human deserve such high appraisal at the heavenly table?

His life is not stable enough to enable him to live to such standards,

And when you truly know him he will show you how he panders

To the pantheon like a prawn drawn from brackish waters unadorned,

Then he will be what he really, truly is as no more than flesh and blood.

    1. Thank you so very, very much! This was written following an extraordinary compliment I received from a fellow student, for which I really am undeserving … so it inspired this poem.

    1. Thank you, Kamal. I believe I’m right that every major religion (and some minor ones, too!) believe and teach that humility is the fount (or fountainhead) of all other virtues…. And I really, deeply liked the picture, too! Blessings to you! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      1. Yes absolutely true every religion teaches us values of life and to be humble and kind to all but we as humans have not understood what religion is all about and think our religion is far superior than others and then all wars take place and millions have got killed in the name of religion. You are always welcome Jonathan. Blessings to you too 😊😊😊😊😊
