The grass is always greener ...
they told me with intent
and I yearn to take it literal
ignoring what they meant

My cup is overflowing
Yet I grasp it not to drink
But dream that to a further shore -
I'm rowing
But scared that once I leave the solid sand -
I'll sink

Is good enough? Most say it's so.
Yet I still think and ponder
what I might miss and never know.
Stay and drink? Or should I wander?

A question many of us have pondered at least once in our lives. As my grandma used to say, "The grass is always greener.....wherever there's more manure."

Good poem.

Excellent! In answer to the question may I offer my opinion? Stay and drink!

Hehe, love the comments guys! LOL!

Yes seems like the best decision ... as the two of you agree (too funny Balladeer) ...

Alright then:

You have two hands, so take with one
and with the other give
that's the way that life works out
and that's the way to live
what you get and what you give
must balance up some day
it's give a little, take a little
all along the way...

Now don't be greedy and share that drink...

Hugs

------------------
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
