Take the Time

When the World feels like sanity 
Is in short supply 
And reality is a commodity 
That most people 
Has called “Sell” 
Rather than “Buy”. 

This is the time 

When one looks deep 
Into one’s heart 
When self-belief 
Plays its part.
Take the time though 
Take the step back 
From the brink. 
Take that breath 
And look afresh 
At what you know.  

Or what you think you know. 

Consider again the facts 
Consider returning 
Back to the state of unknowing; 
Of admitting that one 
Might be wrong. 
Look at the facts anew: 
Humility is the rarest virtue.
