Let there be light

Jealousy is an emotion that can kill,
Many a time, it occurs as a result of making a mountain of a molehill;
It can choke, when with or without a gill,
A fish out of water feels and nothing can fill,
The void of regrets, not having fulfilled one’s dreams,
When, in danger zone, traumatic effects are seen and life seems to be bursting at its seams,
Comrades don’t listen; they condemn one in anguish who screams,
Aloud to make one’s voice heard, as anything is worse than what it seems,
Judgment Day seems to have come before expected, one feels like giving up in despair;
Jealousy is like Kryptonite, sapping one of positive feelings, making one think life’s really unfair,
Or like a Dementor, whose name is enough to scare,
And presence difficult to bear;
In this materialistic world of gold-diggers, few seem to care,
For a noble cause and for those, to confront their fears, really dare;
Life’s like a race, it zooms ahead like a hare,
An individual who’s happy with limited resources is rare;

However, there’s light at the end of the tunnel,
So there’s another opportunity for one’s ideas to sell,
Another story to tell,
Life on Earth is not really like Hell;
Dark days are over,
Even by thinking, “Never say never”;
One is not too small to make a difference,
Even a lit incense stick can trigger a bonanza of luminosity, which makes sense.
