I was just looking at some pictures and I am jealous.

Look at your pictures. They have everything I've wanted.

But me, I am not as fortunate as you.

Call me a complainer and a belly acher.

And tell me I can change it all around.

But when your dad dies and your mom cries.

We will see if your world isn't turned upside down.

Look at your smile and your crest white teeth.

You have nothing to hide and you are so real.

Your body glows without your stylish clothes as you tan there on the beach.

My body is awkward. I was made that way.

I have a six pack, but no one has much to say.

Look at you. You are popular. Your good at football and hockey.

I tried to be good at sports, but my nerves were out of line.

I would never be able to do anything on time.

Look at your family you love them dearly.Don't they mean the world to you.

They treat you well and understand, but me I'm on my own.

Look at your friends they respect you and tell you you're great when you're down.

But me, I worry about people and have nothing but this frown.

Your lover is beautiful your significant other delights your world.

But me, I still search for the one.

You have a picture perfect life. Don't you dare mess up.

But me, a picture perfect life I'd never live up.

I guess I am jealous of all you fellows who haven't had hell dealt to you.

But we all deal with what were dealt and nothing's our fault.

So living is all I can do.
