The grass is always greener

We sometimes disregard the things we own
and carelessly take them for granted,
although our life is just on loan
and without our help was planted.

Showing envy then is no justification,
which only reveals our greed,
and clearly defies all examination
because the green can be nothing but weed.

The aim for us is simply satisfaction
with what we have or leave or do.
What others have is only a distraction
from what we know is good for us and true.

Aus meinem Buch:

Inspired by pictures I wrote poems about life in general, nature and man. Some poems are humorous, others serious, because we humans are not always so smart to consider the effects of our lives. Most of the pictures are watercolours by an as yet not much known painter.
