Humble Pie

My momma gave me humble pie
This evening for dessert
She told me that I needed it
I am a cocky squirt

I ate it rather slowly
Something started to occur
The thoughts of me and mine, mine, mine
Began to be a blur

Across from me, a sister
I now noticed in the room
A brother, dog, dad, mother
Oh my, how it all did bloom

So smart, so talented they are
To think I never saw
How yummy, too, this pie
That was delivered by my ma

Inside my heart a miracle took place
From that first bite
Such gratitude and joy
It’s like I finally saw the light

So, if you’re acting snotty
And Mom gives you humble pie
Enjoy each bite, it just might change your life
Don’t ask me why.
