Inspire Envy

I want to walk down the street
Not so much in the latest fashion
But that the way I walk turns heads
And inspires envy instead
I would like to meet with famed people
Not so much for their status
But for the smiles that we would share
And somehow inspire envy
I would like to leave eloquent words
Not so much for the fame and fortune
But for the way my thought and mind
Would create and inspire envy
I would like to capture one rich moment
No, not so much for the adulation
But for the way fortune had smiled
And touched me and inspired envy
I want to  smile with each person I meet
With confidence and curiosity
That in doing so
I could simply inspire envy
And I want to love in a grand way
That people stop and stare
And come away with this feeling
We , you and I, have inspired envy
