Six: Envy

My eyes oh so green
glitter outwards
surveying all
just beyond my grasp
Yet others have what I would have
It cuts so deep within
as I wait

Dare I question
the decisions of the world?
Do others see
more clearly than I?
Must I sit on the sidelines
never called to the game?
What do others have
that I do not?
To me we seem the same

So am I here to blame
for envious thoughts
and dreams of deeds
that overpower the world entire?
Within my soul this fire
drawing to me now
what is long denied
And even if
the heavens cried
I’d want it now
I’d want it now
And more besides
