Jealousy

Jealousy relies on
Deception
And misdirection
Rather than power

Jealousy lies in wait
And sets traps
Preying on any vulnerability

It takes great courage
To be vulnerable
When you're surrounded
By jealous vultures

Jealousy acts this way
Because it has no power
Jealousy is powerless
Have you ever been jealous
Of someone who wasn't
Better than you?
Jealousy feels the way it does
Because it can't do shit

Jealousy is recognition
That you're in the presence
Of a greater man

Jealousy is notice
That you should
Stop staring
And introduce yourself
And start taking notes
