while no one was looking

No one was looking poem by steven james humphreys

I never knew when I was being tested before

if you understand what being tested means

you will of course understand what I am saying

the universe does this

for its own reasons

the gist of the test

was being honest and doing

the right thing when I could have

gotten away with it in two

entirely different matters

and there was a turning point

and I chose the right thing to do

twice and no one will ever

know I did it except for me

and God

Funny that at this point in my life

I knew I was being tested

it was clear both instances

were a test of my honesty

and therefore my character

when no human was looking

over my shoulder.
