Effortless Humility

With your down cast eyes and barely audible replies
I mistook your coyness for humility
How often words of self degradation had escaped your lips
How was I to know it was all so carefully crafted?
You sought opposite meaning in the words you spoke
For someone to argue with you and oppose your self depreciating
So, that you would not have the misfortune of appearing to boast
How clever you are to seem so humble and do it so effortlessly
Not many would guess how much you value your goodness
How proud you are of your pretended humility.
