Envy

The jealous are unfortunate,
living a life without purpose.
Instead foreign accomplishments
become their source of great distress
.

Longing for someone else to fall,
transforms owned steps into a crawl.
When never choosing to look straight,
massive brick walls can self-create
.

Energy aimed on someone else
is best when placed upon oneself.
Staring inside a troubled mind,
as dimmed darkness tumbles behind
.

Building a new world of comforts
while satisfying one’s own thirst.
Forming a bridge towards ample wealth,
still manifesting vigorous health
.

Brightening up a dampened soul,
gifting it with owned self-control.
Speaking frankly with inner-self,
feeling more pride, loving ourselves
.

  1. Thanks for sharing this – I like the new-age overtones like manifesting for concepts old as time, like overcoming jealousy and searching for happiness <3
