Enraged Jealousy (For What Others Have Got)

Rating: 4.7
Enraged jealousy in a mind
that's like a child's
selfish beyond belief
you need to get a life

If you go through life
watching what other people do
you'll have no life left
with nobody to blame but you

If they have this, if they have that
does it matter that you haven't got
what they have got

Be thankful for what you have
because some people don't have a dime
but they don't complain
they see life for what it is......

An honour and a privilege

One who harbours jealousy can never be happy, whereas contentment lies at the root of happiness. Another wise and true write from your pen.

Jealousy is to be blamed when unhappiness creeps in, Just throw out selfishness and see its ones honour and privilege to have a beautiful life... Lovely poem...Enjoyed reading it.
