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 you’re 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

About

I am a writer, poet, humorist, screenwriter, blogger. I am not a label. Out of tragedy comes comedy. I see hysterical in the simple. This is my head. I live an extraordinary ordinary life. 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 and start over again. I invite you to laugh, release and lighten up with me. When life has kicked your butt, it's all about the comedy! Comedy fuels me, poetry soothes me, and dancing ignites...
