Jealousy is a word a lot of people know of.
Jealousy of another friend or someone else’s love.
Things they want are not theirs. They wish that they were.
They find themselves saying I wish that I were her.
While all the time you have something they will never get,
and that is why you should be grateful to ever have it.
Those things you see them showing off are merely material things.
Do you really think you can live off gold and diamond rings?
They cannot buy you happiness if you value love,
so next time stop to analyze just what you’re jealous of.
