Grass is always greener at yonder site,
Yet the jealous pangs gain might!

Septic reaches heart, mind loses insight,
Mouth turns foul, starts the disparage recites!

full of what you shouldn't utter?

  which eats you alive with slanderous nonsense--
  about your ex, matters of sex, or your neighbor's pecs?

Will the gates of Heav'n await me
Will they let my soul inside

The Grass is Always Greener
The stares burn my skin,
I fail to conform, becoming faded in the world.
Only one choice: follow others or be forgotten,
The ropes hold me back, forcing me to forget myself.

The Ignorant Fools and I
I envy those ignorant fools
Those smiling idiots
Worry nothing

I am mad
Of my own situation
Frustrated but no action

And the ignorant fools
Envy me
That I have a place called home

I can argue all day
The grass is always greener on the other side
But all I...Read More

my head likes to second guess
My head likes to second guess
Argue with the gut feeling
Deny the feeling of wings

To new souls that beckon

Where grass is always greener
Pain is not as purple as blood and 
Joy is more...Read More

What's it like to be a twin
The answer used to come with great ease
My answer wasn’t an answer at all, but a complimentary question,

And vows of chastity nail heart...Read More

What sends the athlete to a sweaty slaughter ?

A language with so many sides
makes it hard to decide

The Grass Is Greener, But
It’s all a matter of perspective
When another’s possessions are craved
Unaware there’s someone behind you
Desiring what’s yours and feels depraved

On the other side of life”, they say
But it’s a matter of perspective
A look behind you may...Read More

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

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