I’ve never been a jealous type

I never felt the need

Jealously leads to stress

I’ve never had the time

One of six children

As a child I learned to share

Being a jealous type

Would have got in the way

Of dreams I couldn’t share

I dreamed of walking on the moon

I dreamed of wealth and fame

Dreams that never came

But I’ve never envied others

For what they have achieved

For I’ve had a very happy life

And of this there’s certainty

With all that I still want to do

There’s no room for jealousy
