Envy


All I want
Is to feel happy for you
But somehow
it’s such a hard thing to do

In this sorrow
I’m feeling sad
So afraid
It makes me mad

I’m feeling envious
It’s true I’m jealous
Strange how your success
Somehow makes me feel less

I feel shame
Who can I blame?
My blackened heart
Has lost this game

I want to rid my mind
of this nuisance
have it replaced
with feelings of abundance

Feeling happy for you
Takes much effort
and someday
I will do it too

I don’t wish you ill
and I know someday
despite all this struggle
I will wish you well
