What if the grass is greener on the other side?

Just thought I’d share a poem that I came across on twitter a few years ago, it’s my first time posting someone else’s work (I’ve linked their website if you want to read more) and one of few poems that I never get sick of reading. Hope you like it as much as I do!

 

What if the grass is greener on the other side,

Because it’s always raining there,

Where the ones who never fail to give,

Hardly have enough to spare,

Where the people with the broadest smiles,

Have pillows filled with tears,

And the bravest ones you’ve ever known,

Are crippled by their fears,

It’s filled with lonely people,

But they’re never seen alone,

Where those that lack real shelter,

Make you feel the most at home,

Maybe their grass looks greener,

Because they’ve painted on it’s hue,

Just remember from the other side,

Your grass looks greener too.
