A furtive glance is all that is needed

A burn in my heart

A churn in my stomach

His processions

His status

His wealth

Are the causes

I have to remove this internal burning

I must leave everything

I must obtain everything

I follow his processions

I keep track of mine

What he possesses

I now possess

What he is

I am

Then it all becomes a whirlwind adventure

I am inferior again

He acquired more

He is more

More than me

I linger my eyes on him

His possessions

His status

His wealth

I instantly go after it all

I slowly reach the top

I am on par with him

But he does it again

I am left behind

Tired, weak and helpless

I just accept it all

I watch him fly further and further

I feel myself falling further and further

There is no way back up

So I just close my eyes and land to where I should have been all this time.
