Poem: We were ashamed

We were ashamed.
We’d been caught out.
We thought he hadn’t heard us.
We wouldn’t have been talking about it if we’d known.

We were ashamed.
Boasting about our own achievements.
Scoring points over each other.
Even though we knew none of us could better him.

We were ashamed.
Wanting the best places.
Wanting the highest reputation.
Knowing that it wasn’t what Jesus was all about.
