Artist Jealousy

Have you ever felt this way? Jealousy because your comparing yourself with another? Well, I have and sometimes I don't recognize those wicked little thoughts as jealousy, until I examine each one closer..
Have you ever felt this way? Jealousy. Because you’re comparing yourself, with another? Well, I have too and sometimes I don’t recognize those wicked little thoughts as jealousy, until I examine each one closer. So, I wrote a little poem about that ill-willed feeling in hopes that I would learn a lesson…

Artist Jealousy

I want you to be blessed
~ I really do.
But, don’t rise above me
Cause, then you’ll see a shrew
 ~
“Oh, you’re so amazing,”
Speaking from my pride
But, don’t rise above me
Cause my knife will hit you’re blindside
~
 You’ll think me “so kind.”
Lying threw my teeth
But, don’t rise above me
Cause, that bus? I’ll throw you beneath.
~
Now, put your work on the front
And, by the way, here’s mine!
But, don’t rise above me
Cause only I can shine!
~

  1. I have watched competitors of different types and though athletes banter verbal garbage they are able to work out their egos (some) by exercising and doing their posturing. But artists hold in their competitiveness because artists are suppose to be “above that” or be so worldly and embracing a green humanitarian approach to competition that their feelings are quenched by other means (ETOH or drug use). I have spoken with artists who diss others for various reasons, but the bottom line is, most humans do have egos and making an ego die is tough work… Appreciating another gifts is an act that must be willingly practiced and willingly appreciating of another human talent… After all, there is enough talent to go around… Money is another issue.

    1. Erika, we all have an ego that takes over from time to time… would like to participate in a poetry or limerick contest writing about jealousy or negative emotions all of us deal with. Facing the “demons” head on is the best way for me to fight them… Also, a little contest could be fun and may provide some laughs about honesty and human frailties.
