Keep your personal vision bright.
Overlook bitter words from rapacious hearts
whose envy seeps from them
like blood into cloth.
Stay cheered and maintain a confident essence.
Let anger at those begrudging you be removed.
They, tangled within their webs of esurience,
their torment must be considerable.
Be heartened forever,
for if not for your own intrepidness,
you could be them.
