Green grass

NaBloPoMo 2021

Water your grass but do not compare

With the grass in your neighbor’s yard, beware

Greener it would always appear

And you would always live with the fear

That you are not doing something right

As long as you keep the neighbor’s yard in sight


You thought with your life you were content

To change things around was not your intent

Until your friend’s lifestyle you saw

The glitter you perceived filled you with awe

Suddenly your home and your life lost their luster

Before their opulence your lifestyle did not pass muster

And so the seeds of discontent were sown

No longer enough was what you did own


Comparison robs you of joy, they say

Away from comparison it is best to stay

Take in what others have, admire what we see

On the surface, without knowing the reality

Even if we cultivate our grass with utmost care

Our grass would not be green enough if we compare..

  1. This is, literally, so very true for me. Neighbors on both sides of me installed new sprinkler systems and lovely sod. Suddenly my yard doesn’t look so green any more. Not to worry…their green grass is slowly growing into my yard. 😃
