Grass is Always Greener

“The grass is always greener on the other side,”

my grandma said,


but that it isn’t.


She was fed up

with hearing people say this,

English is not her native language,

and this proverb did not make sense.


So, one day,

She hiked across the street,

And she said, “Well I’ll be damned.”

“My grass looks greener from over here!”


She put to rest the thought

that she had dead, brown grass.


She learned her grass was always green,

and that she was wrong to ever worry that it wasn’t.
