WELCOME TO THE TENTH LETTER OF
THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2015:
MY THEME IS TO PICK A SONG TITLE
THEN WRITE MY OWN POEM:
J is for JEALOUSY
BILLY FURY FROM UK:
Why are people jealous?
This I ask myself.
There must be a certain reason,
Could it possibly be wealth?
Jealous of a friend's disposition,
Of things that friends possess.
One has to work for what one has
To me is a sure guess.
Being jealous is not a pleasant emotion,
But now and then rears it's ugly head.
Isn't it much better to be happy?
After all is done and said.
A smile is better than a scowl,
Laughter is better than tears.
Being jealous isn't the answer,
To dispel your inner fears.
Jealous is not a pleasant word.
It may well be you're insecure.
Be grateful for what you have in life,
Your friends will love you more.
