Envy

I look at you in envy
I see all that you have and wonder what my life would be like if I were you
I should be grateful
I have my sight, my mobility and shelter
But still I wonder
That person I look at in envy will themselves be looking at someone else with envy
That someone could be me
Maybe they see happiness in my life which they crave
Maybe they see a family which they desire
Our reasons for envy may differ but in the end
Me
You
Us
Them
We are all lost in a circle of envy and wonder
