Jealousy

There is a feeling of lacking

Somewhere deep in my heart

Something that another has

Why I don’t have it?

 

My heart beating fast

Silently hurting and worrying

As if a beast is hidden

Wanting that thing so badly

 

Secretly wishing bad to happen

Hoping they will fail and fall

Thinking I will be better than them

Slowly I am falling

 

There is a fire

The self is burning

Restless, punching hard

To the wall

 

The self failed to realize

What I have that the other don’t

Which others wished to have

Forgot my hands are full

 

Everybody’s fortune is different

The timing is different

No two person has same blessing

Mine is about to come
