It doesn't matter to you
If I'm your hundred thousandth pageview
Or your billionth subscriber
Or the first to ever follow
Which is kind of hard to swallow
When every fiber of my being
Is continuously screaming

I hate you.

Well, maybe not hate…
But I do envy you.

Because you're what people want.
You're who they gave a chance.
You're who they want to know.

You are discovered.

And all I get is swept under the rug.

So the next time you need me to propel your popularity
I'll be right here
Already envying you.
They say that envy is one of the seven deadly sins. Well, looks like I'm going to hell. See you there.

This is just stooped in irony. Thanks for the feature, though.

Sometimes that is art, too ^^ You have arrived one of our admins with it and that's why you are featured!

I have had times where I am envious of "discovered" artists, to be sure... but it's the same as envying one of the "popular" crowd at school -pointless.
In the end those who are too commonly loved and accepted by the mainstream become isolated in a swarm of superficial fucks. They must then either pretend to care about each and every one of their followers, in effect becoming superficial themselves... or they must remain aloof from it all and pretend their audience doesn't exist for the sake of retaining some bit of authenticity in their art, or in who they are.
Very few people do well with fame. Interesting that so many people crave it.

There is a saying "if you can count the number of good friends on one hand... then you are very lucky" ...I think this applies to watchers, quality feedback, etc. as well.

I cannot argue with that. And now I just feel stupid. Thanks for putting it straight for me. Guess I was just having a moment of weakness.

Jealousy happens to the best of us. No worries. :)

I was having a similar experience with DA a couple weeks back when I wrote this [link] ...the only difference was that I got over the jealousy part pretty quickly and moved on to rage.
(Written on my primary account, this is my secondary one.)

Yes, yes it is. I watch the discovery ID channel a lot which is basically all about murder and people do kill others because they envy them. I will definatly see you there, but you really shouldn't envy other people, you have such a way with words that I don't see how you could envy anyone. No one can take that away from you. Popularity comes and goes while talent and skill do not unless you chose to stop. :3
