We Must Not Envy Him

Little boy with black disc eyes
Circling round on trike
Exuberant in child’s play
Nudging pup to follow,
innocent to life.

Young man, tall with wavy locks
Strong in stature, sure in word
Climbing mountains in single strides
Sure of self,
calm as wind.

Ignorant of others’ woes
Walking free of empathy
He mounts his rise to power
Forgetting you,
feigning nice.
