The Girl In The Picture

Her hair is full and looks like mine once did

The coat she is wearing

I had one that looked exactly like it

It has a hood

The way the buttons are closed

Look like rope around them tied in knots

Hands in her pockets

Perhaps to keep them warm

Behind her are barren tree branches hanging down

The girl in the coat

Reminds me of me

Many many years ago

The smile on her face

Reminds me of how I once smiled

She looks humble just like me

Full of happiness

She is young and has lots of dreams and schemes

Living in the moment

Her future is not ours to see

Who knows who and what

She will become

I was once that girl in the picture

Mind, body, heart, and soul

Humility is nothing else but a right judgment of ourselves.
