Sometimes we think we are in the worst possible situation,
That anyone can be in,
When we begin to compare with the things that appear better,
From our line of sight.
We see the roses always,
And never the thorns.
We pay attention to the money that is earned,
And ignore the labour that was invested.
Usually if something looks too good to be true,
One should proceed with caution,
For there are always far worse things,
That are happening around us every day,
Than we could imagine for ourselves.
