Comparing Lives

It's natural to compare your life against other people's lives - that doesn't make it healthy.

from my middle grade novel, 
Poem by Samantha Springs
            Myers’ side is greener
                                                                                       Pit’s side is meaner
            Robin has a loving family.
                                                                                       I do not.
            Elliott plays high school football.
                                                                                       Brad did not.
            Her mother is always home.
                                                                                       My mom is not.
            Her dad is always sober.
                                                                                       Pit is not.
            Robin’s house is safe.
                                                                                       My room is not.
