Game of Comparison
if only I had your riches
she says to the woman of gold
who glimmers under a constant sun
flashing effortless waves of success
if only I could see the world on your jet
she says to the seasoned traveller
who can never be seen in one place for long
soaking in culture that others see in pictures
if only everyone admired me as they do you
she says to the woman without enemies
who gives her whole heart without asking for return
pleasing anyone who requests her presence
if only my beauty were as vibrant
she says to the woman of conventional appearance
who spends hours in front of the mirror
prepping her mask of the day
if only true love would look my way
she says to the woman with many suitors
who flaunts a new lover with each passing night
ensuring the world has seen her choice
if only I were you
she says to the women she envies
then I may find happiness that I deserve
instead of picking the scraps you’ve left behind
