Jealousy - Poem by Randy McClave
Jealousy is such a hated mistress
When she attacks romance without salvation
She causes anxiety and also distress
She is Satan's earliest and happiest creation.
She attacks the thoughts and also the feelings
And causes threats to the self-esteem
Envy and suspicion are some of her dealings
Bitterness and insecurity is her main scheme.
Sometimes she spites him and taunts her
So she can cause suspicion and also distrust
Be careful of that little green-eyed monster
She is the leader of resentfulness and lust.
She causes the envy of someones else's fame
Which leads towards hatred and its bitterness
And the jealousy of someone else's last name
Adds more upon the suffering and the stress.
She causes the weak to envy and also to sin
She is happy when she causes a grudge or resentment
Her foes and her targets are both women and men
Sad are the weak when jealousy becomes violent.
She cares for no one no matter who it might be
Revenge and suspicion is always a bad card played
Her actions and her deeds they help nobody
She leads to self-destruction and the soul being betrayed.
Jealousy will come to everyones door
Hoping to destroy or tempt their very soul
Her tempting and covetous and desirous we must ignore
As for our our emotions we are the ones in control.
