Humbled

Stood there I, paralyzed

Moved not an inch on either side

Open eyed, gripped with fear

In my mind those voices I hear


“Safe not my child, do not, my child

Not for a lad this”, said he

“You are my one, my only one

Leave not my side”, cried she


Walked into the jungle, unfazed, unabashed

Haughty and proud, to none there I bowed

Gleam and glint filled my eye

All this I will own, I did decide


Now they come back, those words unheeded

Helpless I stand, intimidated

Mortal I am, small I am, this

Nature around all powerful


My folly I realize, humbled I cry

Pray I to come out of here alive

Lessons learnt in the hard way some

A second chance I plead it to come.
