This is outside of my comfort zone as poetry isn't my forte The grass is always greener No matter what we have in life, we always want for more. Competing with our friends, even though no-one is keeping score. They ...

Especially after Jacob allowed Charlie to s...

Writing Challenge: Do Not Enter

Do Not Enter Sign
