Jealousy is its own brand of poison. It stunts real growth, hinders creativity, dulls your shine, takes the wind out of your sails. Read these poems about jealousy and remember your own light: it can't be taken from you. Success is seeing someone else succeed and seeing the reflection of your own light shining back at you.
4 Poems about Jealousy to Remind You...
1. Only carry what's yours to carry...
You can’t take who I am
From me and make it
Who you are.
You would only be
Heavy with your
Cloak of Illusions.
Their light isn't an indicator of your shadow. It's an invitation for you to discover your own way to shine.
2. Your light isn't something anyone can steal...
You can't steal “my” thunder.
You can't take what can't
It is there,
It is not there.
It is not yours or mine to keep.
The light that you're worried about losing? That's a seed that can't be unplanted.
3. If it doesn't feel like love, it's a call for some...
If you see a wound,
Try not to stick your finger in it.
There is no balm like
4. You can't lose who you are...
If it can be taken from you, it was
Never the ultimate truth.
You can never lose what makes you
Don’t worry about losing what you can’t lose. Don’t worry about taking what you can’t take.
