How do I know the grass is greener on the other side
When I do not know of its existence?
I can’t see beyond my reality
All I care for is my daily meal
To quench the hunger and thirst that often knocks me out.
All I care for is shelter over my head
To shield me from the scorch of the glistening sun
All I care for is to see my Mama smile
With her, I yearn for no greener other side.
The grass is greener when my Mama smiles
The grass is greener when my tummy is filled.
The grass is greener….not on the other side that I have no knowledge about.
I only know about now.
Here is greener. There is no other side
I am here; just living,
hoping that the greener stays long.
There is no other side
