Green Eyed Monster

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Green-Eyed Monster.”

Dear Mr Hulk
I too am green
A different green
Not anger
Jealously
I wonder
Which is stronger
The angrier you get
The stronger you get
The more jealous I get
Of you
For you
Can rage and rage
And smash
While I can only seethe
Consequence binds me tight
So remember
When you condemn
Your weaker half
With contempt
It is harder
Much harder
To be human
Than Hulk

  1. I like the way you responded to this post, I found it to be challenging and was not able to even express myself. I guess I have jealous issues which need to be confronted. Thanks for making it so light hearted!
