Greener Grass

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence

The Truth is it’s not, that grass of pretense

Is what your perceiving alluring, deceiving

Believe in that lie and it’s you that’s misleading


That grass of jealousy, greed, discontent

Ego, confusion, disconcerting offense

Envy, illusion that your grass is not green

Is it fear that your grass is not being seen


The bigger the better, precursor to grieving

Those rose colored glasses that have you believing

Your less than, not worthy, you don’t have enough

Enough of the “stuff” that makes living so tough


Keeping up with the Jones’ the fantasy of winning

The treadmill of life that just keeps on spinning

You out of control, empty and void

The life that your living, your being destroyed


In paradise it started with Adam and Eve

They believed in the lie that their grass was not green

They thought there was more, that their lot was devoid

Of what they knew not, they just wanted more


That choice that they made still has dire effect

Repercussions that followed, the masses defect

Like blind sheep they traveled the facade of content

Tormenting, consenting the call to repent


The lesson they taught us was have gratitude

That lives in the space that we know attitude

Be thankful and tend to your own back yard

So many don’t have one and yours is so large


For peace in your soul, grow your grass organic

It’s different I know you feel panicked and manic

Slow down keep it simple, nurtured, de-weeded

Water and sunshine is all that is needed


Soil that’s tended, the grass that you’ll grow

With loving and gladness, please keep your grass mowed

Humble, not boastful, meek, quiet and nourished

In just a short time your green grass will flourish


Compare and despair, don’t look over there

Keep your intentions pure and your heart filled with care

Your patch is not linked to a status or class

With motive uncomplicated you’ll grow greener grass








I am inspired, creative, passionate and fiery. I have been through and will continue. I will put it down and hope you pick it up. I am exposed, vulnerable, honest and authentic. I am sarcastic and witty. My favorite thing to do is watch life and laugh and cry.
