The 6th Deadly Sin

SSF2: The Seven Deadly Sins - Envy (Ma$ked) - YouTube

I’m jealous of every tree

that bears beautiful blooms and flowers

I’m jealous of every bird

which soars the sky for hours.


I am jealous of the roses

which fill the room with intoxicating perfume

I am jealous of the peacock

with fine feathers of hope as a costume.


I’m jealous of every poet

who can create gargantuan fields of smiles

who can create miscellaneous jars of tears

who can write words which could travel for miles.


I am jealous of everyone

who knows the difference between right and wrong

I am jealous of everyone

who is mentally brave and strong.


I am jealous of everyone

who is not a victim of envy

who is not trapped in a cage

so deadly.

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
