Envy Not (NaPoWriMo)

FOWC with Fandango — Envy


The optional prompt features and is inspired by Maggie Smith’s poem, “Good Bones”… a phrase used by real estate agents, regarding the unseen potential in houses lacking appeal.  Click the NaPoWriMo link for more information.  I was pleasantly surprised, once again, that the poem I’d already written wasn’t miles off the mark 😉

I never envied

People their wealth, possessions

Bright shiny baubles…

Allure, was families’ close net

Secure laughter, affection…

In time I realized

No one has fairytale life

Skeletons grin wide
