Joseph's Brothers

forgetting a major part of the story, filling in the gap,
this boy was favored from the door, jealousy was already intact,
hatred steamed from his brothers ears, their words piercing sharp,
mistreated and ridiculed, they mocked his heart from the start,
was it this boys fault he was favored from birth?,
the reaction from his brothers never giving him the chance of loves worth,
instead, hate and jealousy closed their ears,
and persecuted the brother out of heartache and fear,
God saw the unfairness and stood by his side,
until the love was found, and recognized.
