The Grass Is Not Always Greener

The grass is not always greener on the other side
Just like everything- it will die.
It will wither and fade- nothing ever stays the same.
We must accept what we now have
And strive for something more
or make it an unfulfilled dream
That will crash against the shore.


We all have burdens that we must bare
So stick with family and friends who really care.
Keep a positive outlook on life
and everything will turn out right.

The rich and famous have their problems too
And like us, they don’t know what to do.
They get every thing that wealth can buy
Then strive like hell to survive.

Mortgages and homes that they can’t
Afford to keep.
Then sit in their brand name chairs
And begin to weep.

We exceed our incomes by the thousands
While they exceed theirs by the millions.

Who has more to lose? Which one would you choose?

So when they tell you the grass
is greener on the other side.
MAYBE JUST MAYBE-IT’S A LIE
