I have just learned about a phrase I heard so many times before
But because I didn't know the meaning thought of it no more
It's the phrase green eyed monster that I learned about today
Jealousy is that ugly monster: sure hope it stays away
I have known it in my past before, but didn't know its name
I experienced it from those who were bent on seeking fame
But the only thing they didnt know was I'm not after any gold
And could care less about their honors if I can be so bold.
Seems like we're taught from early age: its a must to compete
And That the other is our rival : we fight for what we eat.
It would be a rare thing to hear someone teach on sharing
Or put emphasis on the other and the value of really caring.
Yet when all is said and done and we finally close our eyes
Where will all our belongings go? For what did we sacrifice?
We cannot take anything with us: when all is said and done
Wouldn't it be so much better then, to better everyone??
