Envy



To envy or begrudge another

Yields spirit most unsound

A flaw of such ill temperament

That no one wants around

If all one does is yearn for that

Which others do possess

Your life that might be bountiful

Is unjustly viewed as less

It’s rooted in low self esteem

Which might not be one’s fault

It’s shadowy and ill-defined

Brings calmness to a halt

The view outside the window of

Your soul seems so much brighter

Yearning for the scales to tip

Won’t make your wrongs seem righter


Being just so discontent

With longing that's most spiteful

Evil is your calling card

If you think harm's delightful

For nothing good comes from the act

Of comparing and despairing

Instead acknowledge you enjoy

A life worthy of sharing!
