Whether a grown-up, a child, or a teen -
We want to be noticed, we want to be seen.
We buy a new auto, with soft leather seats -
or buy a new wardrobe that nobody beats..
But buying top brands at all the best stores -
is just simply futile if showing our drawers.
Our pants must be pulled up with shirt tucked down in -
and must walk with stature of dignified men.
Ingrained are small habits in ways we have found -
to draw the attention of folks all around.
But I am much better than all of the rest.
There's no need to ask me. I'm simply the best.
And seldom - oh, seldom - so seldom I see -
a person more humble - more humble than me.
I don't spit tobacco, gossip, or 'cuss' -
so please, Heaven help them - to notice Jesus.
