Number 30.

Feeling important

Author Unknown


Sometime when you're feeling important

Sometime when your ego's in bloom

Sometime when you take it for granted

You're the cleverest man in the room

Sometime when you think that your going

Would leave an unfillable hole

Just try this little experiment

And see how it humbles your soul

Take a bucket and fill it with water

Place your hands in it up to your wrists

Pull them out and the hole that remains

Is the measure of how you'll be missed

You may splash all you please when you enter

You may stir up the water galore

But stop; and in just a minute

It will look just the same as before

The moral of this story is quite simple

It's just do just the best that you can

Be proud of yourself, but remember

There is no indispensable man
