When The Grass Browns ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

When on the other side,
the grass starts to brown
when the green fades
and all you see is ground.

That’s when you’ll find,
the fence doesn’t matter
it’s just your credit cards
that have become fatter.

When your envy pales,
and is no longer green
and your savings account
has become too lean.

That’s when you’ll know,
jealousy is a fickle thing
and true happiness
it can never bring.

For when we learn,
how to be truly content
over what others possess
will no longer torment!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:11

Not that I speak in respect of want:
for I have learned, in whatsoever
state I am, therewith to be content.
