What Envy Does Is Kill The Person Inside - Poem by Shalom Freedman


What envy does is kill the person inside-
There is nothing more ugly
Than satisfaction at the misfortune of ones friend-

For this alone
No human being deserves to be immortal-

Envy and pleasure at another's misfortune
Teach us
Our Death is justified.
