It’s maddening to see
good things come to a friend
without a little criticism
It’s the ugly sin of envy.
Since the time of your birth
No one has noticed your worth
You may feel deprived
but God is on your side.

Wise King Solomon had something to say,
About how man wasted his day,
He warned us long ago of the emptiness chasing things brings,
Things like: Multiple advanced degrees,
Fancy wine and brie cheese,
Deep tissue massages,
And big houses with boat garages,
You may ask: Then what shall we do with our time and such?
Be thankful to God whether in little or much.
*Based on Ecclesiastes
