Scorned by the meek and humble minded,
And often by the vain possessed,
Heard by the deaf, seen by the blind.
I give the troubled spirit rest.


Answer

"NOTHING" is the correct answer.

NOTHING is scorned by the meek and humble minded

The vain possesses NOTHING

The deaf hears NOTHING and the blind sees NOTHING

And NOTHING gives the troubled spirit rest.

Yeah...generally the "vain" have many possessions. Maybe nothing of "true" worth, but many worldly possessions. Could be worded better.
