The spirits envied us

The spirits envied us
Because we are humans
because we have flesh and blood
because we are not hollow
because we have a heart
because we have feelings
because we can fear
because we can cry
because we can feel pains
because we can reproduce
because the earth fits us as home
the spirits envied us

    Yes, the spirits have none of these attributes, we have it all and sometimes abuse it. Such thoughtful words to read.
