They say the grass is greener

On the other side

But I cannot seem to get there,

And God knows, I’ve tried.

A couple of times I’ve managed

To climb the wall and see

But then I lose my balance,

And fall back into misery.

I’ve sat and thought

The issue through

And now I know

Just what to do,

Instead of climbing walls

And having falls

I’ll try something else instead

I’ll try to reverse the way I look

And get inside my head.

If I can act more positively

To change my own green space,

I won’t have to try to climb at all.

Or fall so far from grace.

It will not cost so much,

Not more than I can afford,

If I made my world more beautiful,

Then I won’t have to go abroad.
