The Grass Is Always Greener

Today I saw the sun shine through
And smiling happy faces
Moving on and never looking back
Takes you to wonderful places.

They say the grass is greener
On the other side of life
But we should enjoy what's on offer
Free from trouble and strife.

We found a comforting road there
But now it seems to have gone
Better to stay on your own side
It doesn't matter which one.

Being human we are never satisfied
We'll always aspire for something new
The world could be a better place
But then again, “Not always true”.
