The Greener Grass on the Other Side

The grass is greener on the other side
until reality takes us on a crystal ride.
We often try to travel far and wide
Until we see the treasures by our side.

The greener grass on the other side
should not tempt you into terrible tide.
Let patience rule over pointless pride
and grace will be your glittering guide….

The greener grass on the other side,
may be the beauty of a bleeding bride.
For every glee, there is a gloom to hide,
water your ground before you take that ride…

The greener grass on the other side
have survived floods and landslide.
So before you jump in for a joyride
watch out for signs of social suicide.

The greener grass on the other side
should not make you roam or reside
on a platter of prejudice and pride…
Think twice before you take the risky ride.

The greener grass on the other side
cannot beat the glow you have inside,
before you take a tour far and wide,
drop your can of emotional herbicide.
