Poem "Dilemma"

Someone sent me this poem, a bit tongue in cheek, but also with her desire as she came for spiritual direction.

I find it a very compelling poem.  It touches so much of how we posture ourselves and the tenacity of the False Self to re-incarnate itself even in the good!…

 

Dilemma
by David Budbill

I want to be
famous
so I can be
humble
about being
famous.

What good is my
humility
when I am
stuck
in this
obscurity?
