the surprise

the surprising thing about nice people

the folks who hold themselves

to be decent sorts

is what great haters they are

hiding their insecurities

jealousies behind the facade

of their sweet front of niceness

people don’t like to see you fly

when they struggle with walking

pacing the pavement day to day

your confidence is a challenge

when they feel fear failure again

that happiness you push out

feeling the sun heat your back

the air fresh in the morning

sky blue birds across the clouds

whistle on your lips peace at last

these victories they fail to grasp

preferring instead to see you in pain

struggling to make ends meet

then the nice people will love you

& you will see their smiles
