The addict and the sober 

I have learned selfishnessfrom those who give 

and 

from those who receive.

I have seen greed live in those 

who have 

and 

in those who not. 

I have witnessed dishonesty 

in truth 

and 

honesty in lies. 

I have watched addicts reject 

and 

the sober crave.

I’ve watched as those in the middle burn of hateful judgment 

not realizing 

they are both the addict and the sober of all things combined.
