poetry: Self-deprecation

Quietly, reflecting upon my own weaknesses

as opposed to the biting sarcasm directed

by my inner Amalek to myself.

Humorously, putting myself down;

yet, sometimes, without realizing

the harsh results from others.

Where can the line be drawn

between humility and disparagement,

lowliness and denigration?
