Jealousy isn’t something you can see,
but an emotion inside you or me.
It’s formed from wanting and greed,
and may cause you to think that everything you need.

It seems like everyone has felt jealousy once in there life,
But if you have not, it may feel like the stab of a painful knife.
Anger and incontentment are some things you may feel,
and you may find yourself hoping that this life isn’t real.

All the time I find myself thinking that I don’t have enough,
I don’t have enough money, not enough clothes and lots of other stuff.
Everyone seem to have way more than me.
But I can’t have everything you see.

To conquer Jealousy and to not let it proceed ,
You must figure out what you want and what you need.
And then your jealousy will recede
Allowing your greater qualities to succeed
