Envy


There's a green eyed monster on your back
Smile at my face
But I know where you're really at
Subtle remarks
I'm in a room full of sharks
They smelled blood
And tried to pull me apart
I can see you tried to find a problem
Even when I did good
I've noticed it just led to drama
And I thought it was me
No matter what I do you'd never agree
I see the envy as the root of the critique
But you come a dime a dozen
I'm successful and you're mad cause' you wasn't
I work hard and this other person doesn't
And really I love it
You attempt to pull me down
But I'll still wear the crown
While you be labeled as a clown
Now I've found that you're around everytime I fall short
Feign understanding
I see you relish my remorse
Now I see the truth
You choose to stay in touch
But aye what's the use?
I'd rather cut you loose
Chucking up the duece

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
