From Curiosity Came Jealousy

I

 

In this truthful story I will simply explain

How from a world of plenty came boundless pain

From the start there were two gods who brought birth

To a paradise and wonderland place called earth

Positive the first and negative there after

Both kept alive by the sounds of their laughter

The first god placed good like water among the land

While negative instilled fear with his “caring” hand

This simple balance of light and dark

Would be a foundation on which life would embark

Humans created and homes for them all

Comfort in disaster and relief during fall

Exact perfection created right out of the blue

This world would stand perfect, yet that fact’s untrue

 

II

 

Each god created humans all one in the same

Each the same income, each the same name

One human was different, a glare in his eye

His name was Cyclare, the perfect ally

He always said please and walked with a smile

This trait was static, yet he’d turn hostile

There was one dimension the gods couldn’t equate

That human nature is a not a perfect state

He got the same meal, same money, same toys

Yet that wasn’t enough these given joys

He wanted more than the rest of the pack

This is where curiosity would finally strike back

 

III

 

Surely and slowly he enlisted some friends

Who knew not of this curiosity end

He’d sway them like he’d do countless others

Even forcing this idea on his very own brother

Positive saw this, this flaw in his plan

The start of jealousy has finally began

Negative looked on with a small simple smirk

Positives reaction was quite berserk

Negatives corruption had come very fast

The serenity they had was gone in a flash

IV

 

Cyclare had instilled jealousy among the land

Using human nature that wasn’t planned

From curiosity came jealousy, this painful force

Throwing love, trust, and care off course

Now the world in a state of chaos goes on today

People live their lives in their very own way

Jealousy, the corruptive force that has spread

Filling the hope in mankind with dread
