Owl Poetry & Prose

Know Your Judas

I found envy when I was fallen, bruised and trying to rise again.

I saw envy when I had just found my feet & was learning to walk again.

I sensed envy amongst the familiar – people I had grown with and known

I found it in the insidious remark, the laugh, the snicker

I found envy in all places but where I thought they should dwell

Supposedly in the hearts of those who are mean, shallow

But no

I found it in all the places I expected to find joy

For many live something they’re not

And I foolish and naïve trustingly assumed

My plight would herald empathy not envy

But alas, human nature is fallible

It teaches lessons when you least expect and with who

The envious ones are closer than we care to look
