Stolen blessing

Stolen blessing


Happiness filled the house when the first arrived
He was believed to be the special one
Because of the first, the parents were proud
For he brought joy to everyone

Then there came the second
He was loved and cherished
He lacked nothing and was protected
He took everything from the first

Later on, the second had respect and game
And he was treated differently from the first
The first’s eyes were filled with salty liquid
As he feels resent for the second

For Jacob was blessed not Esau
Ephraim was blessed not Manasseh
A stolen blessing, a stolen future
But the Creator has the final say
