The grass is greener

by Alec Sharp

The grass is greener is it not?
Fields of promise, fields of hope
Winds of change and start anew
New beginnings hold good fortune
Little known bout these fields afar
But others seem to prosper.
Time moves on doubts move in
Start to fail start to think
Others failed long before
Broad shoulders for the burden
Regretful wishing for what could have been
Had that grass not looked so green.
The grass is green is it not?
