A Humble Man - Poem by Joseph Anderson

Can you find a humble man,
Glad to be on God's green earth?
One who holds no greedy plan,
Knowing wealth has no true worth.

Perhaps, if you search around
You may find the one I seek;
Standing firm on shaky ground
Proud, yet modest, kind, yet meek.

If your search discovers him
Would you for a moment pause,
To lift his precious diadem
And return to me, because

I cannot find the one I seek,
Someone with a gentle plan;
Proud, yet modest, kind, yet meek;
Can you find a humble man?

    Such a one is extremely hard to find, Joe!
    But, there is hope, all things are possible
    with God, that’s why we must trust Him.
    A wonderful poem, thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply

    Hello Joseph,
    It is better to be humble than proud because pride comes before a fall. A humble child
    taste the grace. A very good rendition of a heart warming poem. This poem was issued
    out of a humble heart. Appreciate the opportunity for a good read. (Report) Reply

    There aren't many of them around Thomas, but they must exist somewhere - I am sure you are one of them to possess such understanding, and to be able to produce such a wonderful poem. (Report) Reply

    Very hard to find. I'm thinking that perhaps most just don't understand what that means. However, thanks for this beautiful poem from one who truly understands what it means to be humble. (Report) Reply

    Maybe, just a thought, if you have a mirror he could be in there., take care of him if he is!

    Just the title along caught my immediate attention and after reading this elegant and humble poem, I have found it to be spiritually inspiring and thought provoking! 10+++ This well crafted and moving write really touched me! My answer to your penning question is YES like our fellow poet Smoky Hoss said below! I try so hard to be humble and kind toward my fellow human beings and I think I am getting in there, slowly but surely! Keep it up! God Bless You! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City!
