Personification of Jealousy

If ever I meet Jealousy, I will ask him many things
Like why the happiness of someone else is difficult to see
Or why the good in our own lives feels emptier somehow
Than the kind of good that oft we find to others was endowed
If happy occurrences help make the world go ‘round
And too much good exists to in one man abound
Then what choice do we have but to share the charge
Of caring for a goodness exceedingly large
He wants to make mine instead of thine
That which belongs to us all
And if ever I meet Jealousy, I will ask him why he thought
That he could turn against each other
One happiness at a time
A people so completely by Goodness entwined
