Poem: The Grass Ain't Greener

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"What we Aint Got" by Jake Owen

Summary of poem

The grass ain't greener is about one freely giving his passion to another believing the grass is greener on the other side. He plays with his new toy discarding the one who has his back. When his actions boomerang he sees the shadows from the past wanting back what he no longer has in his life.

"The Grass Ain't Greener"

His passion freely given
to one who caught his eye,
playing on his every word,
tempting him with pleasures
like a child with a new toy.

Touching greener grass,
discarding one who has his back,
actions boomerang,
haunting him with memories,
shadows of the past.
