Envy

I envy you,
But I shouldn’t do that.
Why?
I’m not destroying anything,
I’m simply sad,
Because I don’t have your good fortunes,
Your good looks,
Your life.
So I envy you,
Because I don’t have that.
Why does that make me bad?
Can I not drown in my own bitterness?
I’m not stealing your happiness.
I’m simply jealous.
I just want what you have.

We all want to be important, but we’re not.
We all want to be special, but we’re not.
We all want to be remembered, but we won’t.
So we’re just going to have to try our best with what we’ve got.
