make grass green on your side


Grass is always green on the other side
But one has to know the other side, to see, weather how green the grass really is?

If you’re trapped then you can feel life in a shell
And not see how good life can be.
All those things that looks green and good to eyes
Just turn our own precious hearts go green.
Be content,
At least try to be…
Enjoy every thing…even waiting in a queue…
Life will soon be sunny! ! !

    Very inspirational poem with a strong message of making our vision broader to glance at the other side of the picture which is indeed very important to move on in life with pragmatism.........10/10

    This was so good, that the opening stanza would all you would need for the poem itself, the second is repitious, however very good.

And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
