On the Other Side

Updated on October 04, 2016
Green Green Grass

Written for Poetry Month

We do not realize the worth of what we have unless we cross over and have a look at what is there - on the other side.

The grass is greener on the other side,

That's what they all say,

I walked and crossed over to the other side,

But to my utter dismay!

I saw that the other side was greener,

So I walked again,

Crossed back, over to the other side,

Oh!!! Dear me, it is the same story again.

On the Other Side - Quotes

Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but the opportunity lies right where you are - Robert Collier

You may think the grass is greener on the other side, but if you take the time to water your own grass it would be just as green - Unknown

We are always looking for something better that we sometimes fail to realize that we have the best - Unknown

      Great poem with a great message. We could keep going in circles forever if always looking for greener grass.

      It is true. The grass is always greener - on the other side.

      We have to think of our goals and recognize how many we are achieving right this minute.
