Fire And Jealousy

Fire And Jealousy short poem

Uploaded by Ramapriya Nr

A stick of match is needed to lit the fire
An iota of ego is required to build up the jealousy

Fire spreads the light
jealousy spreads the hatred

Fire generates warmth
jealousy generates breach of peace

Fire needed to prepare food
jealousy is needed to poison the mind

Fire can be extinguished by water
Jealousy gets extinguished by death

Wounds caused by fire heals with passage of time
Turmoil caused by jealousy wrests till one rest in peace

Fire is needed for our existence
jealousy ruins our existence

once again a wonderful poem ………comparing the outer fire and the inner fire “jealousy” which makes the jealous person suffer more and more with the hatred burning him internally without him realising the same, so wonderful comparison how the wound given by fire heals with time but the wound of jealousy becomes deeper and deeper with passage of time so much so that it destroys the man himself …….nice poem…….loved reading it…….
