Grass

Since I was little, I hear people say "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" and when I finally understood the meaning of it, I realized it's actually true. We never really look at what we have the same way we look at what other people have and for quite some time, it was pretty normal to me.

But then, a few days ago while driving somewhere with my boyfriend, it occured me: what happens when you get to cross that fence and eventually reaches the other side? What's supposed to happen when you get there? Will you look at your accomplishments with different eyes or everything will stay the same? And when you look up to someone for everything they've done and their accomplishments, and you get to that exact same point, what happens next?

From the way I see it, you need to start over. You go back to that point you were before, where the grass was always greener on the other side of the fence. It's a vicious circle, no matter what we do and we don't know where to stop... Or where it starts, even. You keep wanting more, you're never satisfied. You want everything.

What is everything? Is it the irony in life when someone gets ahead of you by doing something you weren't bold enough to do? Everything should mean all that you have or need instead of everything you want, because like Mick Jagger once said, "you can't always get what you want". But then, greed covers your eyes in a way that makes it impossible for you to see that even if you mean it with all your heart.

Your grass is greener than others, my friend. That much I learned. So cherish what you already have, and remember "if you try sometime you just might find you get what you need" 'cause someday everything you archieved might suddenly vanish or mean nothing to you anymore, and there's nothing you can do about it. But keep in your heart that your grass should be always greener for you, no matter what.
