In another life you’d be happy
In another body you’d be happy
In another reality you’d be happy
You tell yourself

In another house you’d be happy
In another shirt you’d be happy
In another bed you’d be happy
You tell yourself

With a better job you’d be happy
With a better car you’d be happy
With a better pill you’d be happy
You tell yourself

With a better friend you’d be happy
With a better spouse you’d be happy
With a better child you’d be happy
You tell yourself

What you fail to see
Is what you’ve got
Is what someone else wants
What you are meant to have


The author's comments:
People spend too much time being jealous of each other. It may be difficult to do but we've got to realize that everything we have is something someone else wishes they did.
Live through yourself, not someone else.
