A Greener Grass

You think I have a pretty face My dresses weaved from frills and lace You think that I'm a spoilt brat with diamonds around my neck and roses in my bed You think I own the pot of gold A blissful future to behold You think I live on a greener grass but you know nothing No ,you know nothing about my past There are chapters still on hold A thousand words untold There's emotion still enclosed in a lacrimal drop There is a tasteless tale,a colourless spume and large waves that fall on the shore There's a silent cry which keeps yelling why which keeps loving and hating,mending and breaking Pushing ,embracing our God My unfaithful devotion keeps begging in motion Asking what,where,when,and how long For how long should I wait for to feel the affection, love and protection to listen to daddy singing for me just one birthday song For how long should I pray for,to listen to daddy just calling out my name on the phone You think I have a pretty face My dresses weaved from frills and lace You think that I'm a spoilt brat with diamonds around my neck and roses in my bed You think I own the pot of gold A blissful future to behold You think I live on a greener grass but you know nothing No, you know nothing about my past You know nothing about the way I feel About deep scars that would never heal You just keep thinking that I live I live on a greener grass.

    Charms, to the one who knows the green grass is brown.. Dormat at best and close to death: I've had money, fame, and companionship.. The paradise others will spend a life hoping, striving, even praying for. It was empty, meaningless, even tragic. I know about this grass you speak of! So sorry for hidden pain. Diamonds can't mend a broken heart!

    Congratulations on POTD, i find such sadness in the words of you have written. I think of the old saying you cannot judge a book by it's cover, more people should take the true meaning of this to heart. Love Shane xxx

    We just skim the surface when it comes to the complexities that make a person. Most people put up a brave face and hide the turmoil inside. We miss our parents when they pass but it is so much harder when we see them but cannot communicate due to their physical or mental impairments. May God keep a watchful hand over you at all times my dear friend. Hugs Ron

    Quite a powerful statement...we make too many assumptions about others, when often the reality is the opposite. Well penned.

    Powerful deep emotions Charmaine, like seams of past wanting's parental. Life's tough, but without such what a parent offers as life progresses, is sad through what ever. I simply adore your poetry, James xx

    Congratulations on being chosen TPOD...this is a reminder to look deeper than the surface. We all have suffered pain and one is immune despite appearances. It's much easier to extend kindness than to and blessings, Rhonda

    Your words sing of a heart's need . . . come and sit down, hear my story and tell me yours . . . our yearning for love that is not in a hurry but breathes deeply of our life-soul. Outstanding dear Charma! Much love and light.

    Congratulations Charma on your beautiful lyric being chosen as the featured poem today....hugs Tim

    yes, it is so true that we can never know all there is to know of a person. You depicted that so well. Don't judge a book by its cover.
  1. Date: 1/28/2015 3:33:00 PM

    Okay, you have just woven a tale that what we think we see isn't always the real story behind it. Just because someone has a plush life does not mean they are free from ordinary problems. I found another use for tears, that and your lovely, if sad, poem has made this read mentally uplifting.
  1. Date: 1/28/2015 1:03:00 PM

    Thanks for your warm comnents friends..Much appreciated!Just the poem is misleading,I do have a father ,but he ve been ill for many years,and due to his illness it was impossible to be there in all ways any other dad would.Thanks for reading,Still,life is beautiful!!!!
  1. Date: 1/28/2015 11:48:00 AM touched my heart. This poem of yours touched my heart...Especially the part about the tears. Ah...people often assume so much. I know. Just want you to know...I think you are a very special woman with phenomenal grace and skill. That is the truth...and no assumption. Love you
