Is it wrong to be jealous?
For me to envy the sun the moon the stars that kiss your face everyday
Is it wrong to be jealous?
Of the air u breathe the air you can’t exist without
Is it wrong to be jealous?
Of the land u walk on the land that supports your every step
Is it wrong to be jealous?
Of the food you eat that nurtures you strengthens you
Is it wrong to be jealous?
Of your family for them having known you your whole life
Is it wrong for me to be jealous?
Of all the other people in your heart
Is it wrong for me to be jealous?
Tell me this much
Let me know if I’m wrong for wanting to be the only name on your tongue
Am I wrong for wanting to be the best you’ve ever had
Making you forget the failures of the past and focus on the successes of our future

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
