"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Come on,
you need me.
I can do so much for you

I’ll spread through your soul,
help you grow.
I’m like a fertilizer,
creating huge branches that shoot straight up.

I’m what makes the big dogs who they are.
I’m power,
I’m society,
I’m humanity.

Just a little taste is all it takes.
I’ll do the rest, don’t worry.

It won’t make you any worse than you are now.
Your corrupted flesh is already sloughing off your grey bones.

Don’t listen to them, they’re only holding you back.
I am so amazing.

Envy gives you drive,
it makes you want to win.

What are you missing?
Come on, let me in.

The world seems to revolve around the newest gadget, the trendiest clothes, and the best people. Envy makes the world go round, but it doesn't have to, and it shouldn't.
