When Envy Arise

Updated on July 18, 2011

I took this picture of the sky when a storm was coming in.

When envy rears its ugly head.

A person feels that the good thing should have happened them instead.

It takes over one's soul.

And to their happiness it really takes a toll.

It won't let them share someone else's joy.

Instead it automatically sets the mind to destroy.

Any good thoughts turns to hate.

If it doesn't have anything to overflow its ego, it won't relate.

Ugly behavior begins to arise.

Causing the mouth to spill out discrediting lies.

Rumors are eventually spread.

The untrue words of the envious one, stabs the victim, until their happiness is dead.

Then the thirst of envy is finally satisfied.

Making a false sense of its own self gratification magnified.

      @Will....thank you for stopping by. Lol, we are all subject to envy. Just like I am envious of the woman I just saw with a strawberry shake because I should be the one with it ;)

      This is how I see America's current hatred of the wealthy...just pure envy.

      Great Hub.

      Ugly...Ugly... Ugly... that word "envy." I'm too familiar with this word and I don't like what it does to the mind of others. I live this ugly truth! Sadly it's amongst families, the people who you supposed to trust the most.

      Very awesome piece of work! I loved it. Thank you for sharing!!!!
