Shadow's Book of Verse - 2

I know not hunger,
I am well fed,
Clothed in green,
I know not dread,
My luxurious shoes displease me
while you are barefoot,
I see only green pastures,
Your barren land, I overlook,
I see your pain
And yet I am blind,
I hear your cries
But I let you die.

I am an ocean but shallow still,
I am an arrow waiting to kill,
I am the sun but have no light,
I have the power but choose to deny.

- Shadow

Smriti: I don't know about Blue Jasmine but I like this one as it could be anyone at some point or the other in their lives, saints included. :-)
