Humbled to Myself

I stand humbled amid my own servitude
A ghost reflected 
My shadow bowed of my rectitude
To my souls accord

Afore my growth not withstanding
As one of a Saint
I am not accused.
To those who see me as I am
Unobtrusive in a simple world.

For a competition by 'Just an Archaic Poet'
(The poem of his - The Patron Saint of Worthless Causes)

    "To those who see me as I am"...That is a difficult thing to find in people. What you see is not always what you get. Most will not even bother to look at who is on the inside of us...Wonderful work, Tom! I wish you the best of luck in the contest!
