We Can't Be Envious..


We can’t be envious,
As everyone is gorgeous,
Everything is generous,
Every moment is precious.

Every minute is lubricous,
Every success is laborious,
Every failure is victorious,
We can’t be envious.

    Envy and jealous are two different words with two different meanings..sometimes I think it is good to be envious, as this emotion gives us the energy to live like others, which means we are working harder to get what we like, assuming someone or something as the role model. Jealousy is very negative and should be avoided.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
