ENVY

Envy is the evil of all evils.⠀
Or so we are told.⠀
Yet, it happens, unexpectedly,⠀
especially when most vulnerable.⠀
It eats away our hearts,⠀
robs us of hope,⠀
annihilating any glimmer of prosperity,⠀
whether in the physical or emotional.⠀
But, what if we turn envy upside down,⠀
see it for what it truly is.⠀
A realization;⠀
a moment when we forget gratitude,⠀
for we cannot envy if we remember a beginning with nothing more than who we are,⠀
and leave Earth with nothing more than our spirits.⠀
But the difference? ⠀
How we choose to see this World,⠀
and our choices enacted,⠀
flourished, nourished,⠀
take shape and form.⠀
This is the same for all people,⠀
the wealthy, the poor,⠀
the beginning, the end,⠀
all the same.⠀
So, envy?⠀
If time could speak,⠀
it would whisper,⠀
“Live.”
