Jealous

All around me people are jealous.
Sizing up each other.
Based on clothes, looks, and money.
Nobody looks within.
Sneers at the unpopular.
Longing for Gucci and Prada.
The best that money can buy.
A house the size of a football field.
A room decorated by designers.
Tanning booths, not outlet malls.
Kenneth Cole, not Kohls.
Follow the popular leader.
You can’t eat at this lunch table.
That’s so last season.
She’s wearing that?
Everybody loves me.
Nobody likes you.

I am jealous.

Welcome to every middle school in America. The thing is, you can never win. All it is is perception. Once again, very nice. ;)
