Green-Eyed Monster

Shakespeare’s green-eyed monster
lurks near each of us
I watch a gifted pianist
play flawlessly a piece
I could never master
plunking away a faulted version
feeling jealous that I do not
have the other’s talent.

I watch slim-hipped beauties
and hate my dumpling body
as the monster laughs with glee
why cannot I enjoy the gifts
God has given me instead
of envying those others have

Lord, may we always
be grateful knowing
Your are wise in Your
gift-giving for we are
all part of Your perfect plan
