Pastures are greener
On the other side when fenced
Think cows as they graze

My life seems ok
Til to yours I compare it
You make my eyes green

Happy you are now
A promotion youíve captured
My job canít compare

I see your new car
Sparkling bright in the driveway
My clunker looks sad

Watching you park it
The new boat youíve acquired
Why you and not me

Lord, more would be nice
Seems like he is Your favorite
I grumble to God

Do not be green child
All your treasures are storing
In heaven to stay

He does not know Me
His toys last but a moment
With him they wonít go

He knows not My Love
Satisfaction eludes him
Thereís never enough

Tears roll down my cheeks
I see what Iíve been missing
I have the best thing

I know what to do
You need Jesus I tell him
He will not listen

Pray for him daily
I will no longer envy
Iíll stop all complaints

Boundaries are safe
By the Good Shepherd set
My fence I embrace

Good message in your poem!
Marie Fink11/02/09
This is beautiful and the meter and pattern very unusual. It reads smoothly and sends a great message, one we all need reminding of now and again. Because of the flow, this was fun to read. Super job.

Great truths in this simple poem. I liked it.
