Caretaker of the Green

You look at the grass on the other side of the fence

In your eyes it looks lusher and greener

It’s more full of life

You yearn to roll around over there

Because looking at your own lawn

Doesn’t have the same effect on you anymore

What if I told you that you

Could have grass just as green

The thing is that

The grass isn’t greener

It’s just better kept

I bet

That I asked you when was the last time

You sprinkled love

Or took the time to care for your lawn

You wouldn’t be able to answer

The truth is

That’s the only difference

You didn’t want to take the time

To trim the problem areas

You didn’t bother to weed out insecurities

You just wanted green grass with no work

No effort

The other grass is greener

That’s true


The problem isn’t your lawn

It’s you
