Be Big Enough



I wish I were big enough honestly
to admit all my shortcomings;
Brilliant enough to accept praise
without it making me arrogant;
Tall enough to tower above deceit;
Strong enough to welcome criticism;
Compassionate enough
to understand human frailties;
Wise enough to recognize my mistakes;
Humble enough to appreciate greatness;
Staunch enough to stand by my friends;
Human enough to be thoughtful of my neighbor, and
Righteous enough to be devoted to the love of God.
