I've always envied others,

the children with loving mothers.

I envied their homes,

sweet, fragrant, and welcoming,

unlike my own.

I envied their things,

their constant grins.

I envied their way of living,

while in my own life, sorrow was constantly given.

 

I've always envied others.

 

Then, I heard someone crying.

Were my ears lying?

I approached them,

feeling dumb.

Yesterday, they were smiling,

now they were crying.

Noticing I was there,

they gave me a stare.

 

I've always envied others.

 

Now, this one I envied was in tears,

their eyes behind their years.

Scars covered their arm,

they've came across harm.

 

I've always envied others.

 

Then, I realized this,

something I was glad I didn't miss.

The main factor

was that they were a better actor.
