Someone Else’s Life

The grass is always greener
in someone else’s garden
and you would like to be there.
Would you also like their troubles
and even their despair?
I shouldn’t think so
as it is better to have
the problems you know
than the problems you don’t.
So before you wish for someone else’s life,
remember this,
their life could be
far worse than your own.
