A poem about envy...
Everything that rouses excitement to buy I simply can not.
You can though.
And you show your prizes with your smiling face

Envy

I am poor

And I know what they say, it's the blessing that count

Well I'm poor in blessings too

while you go on your vacation, on your cruise

I eat ramen in a dingy old house that lacks AC

and ya know summers here are brutal..

Everything that rouses excitement to buy I simply can not.

You can though.

And you show your prizes with your smiling face

That smile, whitened and straight from braces

well my teeth are crooked, my skin is bad

Those cute clothes you wear, well mine has holes, are ill-fitting, and I've had for years

So how do you look cute without being able to afford the things that make it that way?

You CAN buy confidence, but the price is too high

So in all your pictures you flaunt your good fortune

While I scowl, and never take pictures of myself

But you don't notice that.

All you can see is how very blessed you are.
