Poem: What Grass is greener?

The grass is greener !

more than a read:



Is it really so

on the other

side

Can I take

these ponies

for a little ride

After all these

years

seems nothing

changed

The troubles

We face.

remains the

same.
Still there is

nothing that

those who are

still waiting on

that same old

promise.

Can ever do

What chapter

they skipped

What’s verses

they missed.

What did they

say to you

Still they are

saying that's it's

a good thing

that's It’s has

never been their

fault.

They are forever

looking .
for that someone

they can find

to try and easily

pass the blame.

Saying!

The thought

that the grass

looked greener

on the other side .

If the color's

the same!
When those others

tried calling.

as the sound

it became sweeter

it was suddenly

just the sound

you needed

to hear as it

came from quite a

different avenue

that's the evil

which exist therein.

It’s temptingly

calling their names !

But wait!

There's this one

clear difference.

Look carefully

then you will see

this idea was

always a game!

Ever heard of

Concrete jungle.
where the cows,

and the horses
have long since

Gone!

They left!
Only the leaders,

and teachers .

are the ones

Who possess

that special wisdom,

the one necessary

to help carry on .

Only to prove that

something has

already gone

wrong.
They are actually

praying for truth .

But living in the

house of lies.
Forgive me

for referring to

the words of this

song as truth!.

Who the cap fits.

Them they can

also wear it !
That's what it'll

Take.
The stuff that

dreams

are made of !
that pride!
After which!

There is no place
to hide .
But to play

One must also pay!

He who fights

run away

though he turned

his back

He lived to fight

another day
Don't act anyway

surprised

If you see him

returning.

Those who will

Attempt to ride

on the rays

of a rainbow .
It won't shine

bright enough

to bring light

or true colors

to the darkness .
into which they

will seek to hide!

then plunge

into the abyss

get a feel

for those who

have tried .

Listen

to their stories.
Experience

the show

for a broken pride

is all

that will be left .

See the prodigal

son .
There was no place

else to go.
If only I had

known .
When you are

finished.
Need I say.


You are all Done!


The grass is greener!

Voted up and awesome! As much as we think that someone has it better than us then we should consider the fact that even if on the outside they appear content they may have it worse than us. Let's be proud of who we are and thankful for what we have and if you accept that which the Lord has already given us only then we may receive more when the Lord sees that we are deserving. God bless.

The grass is greener, the sky bluer and the whole world so much better on the other side, especially when we cross over the Jordan. Voted up and awesome.

Many times in my life i thought the grass was greener on the other side, only to find it growing wild, in need of repair. Beautiful Sky..Bravo..

One of my favorite artist says : be careful how you treat people on your way up the ladder , because you are going to meet them on the way down. That's the way it is.

Thanks mrslagibb.

Hi Teach. thank you for the positive words and that prodigal son , usually tries to possess us at time s but I thank the Most High God that created us for his guidance and protection.

At the top that's the depiction of the prodigal son.

Have a blessed day.

Thank you so much Katrine . The so much came naturally to me , especially after the answer can easily be conjoined to create more flow . I can take your comment and stick it to the bottom of my poem and there it stays with a sense of belong. That what I see so I thank you. Should not tell you but I started reading Life and it is for ever with God's plan.

Grateful thanks , and I shall be over to finish it very soon.

Have yourself a blessed day.

Beautiful poem. I like the new twist on the grass being greener on "the other side". I know of some prodigal sons who I pray will find this truth. Voted up, interesting and awesome!

Grass may be greener on the other side, probably because they have put more efforts to look after it better. I may be prettier, wiser and smarter that the woman on the other side, mainly because I take more time to take care of myself, to learn, to improve, to explore, to observe, to understand how it works in life...to feed my mind with positive toughts, to nourish my spirit...Nothing ever comes just like that by itself, we have to work for everything we want to achieve. Everything is fruit of our thoughts. Voted up :-)
