How to swallow your pride and die of a split open throat

Is it a sin to slap the hand who feeds you the most?

Is it a sin to resent those living in a smaller house?

Is it a sin to resent those who stop climbing when the ladder does?

Is it a sin to refuse to give out kindness like stale candy from the back of a van?

I can’t help but resent

those who

squeeze me into a square tin can

lotion me all over their face

buy me the world for a smile

maybe that’s where i can finally draw the line

between hating me and hating you
