Grass to Glass

I live in the midst of grasses,

Work in the grass in order to live,

And I keep growing, living in the grasses,

I sold enough of the grasses

To build me a green house

I chose to build a house of Glass,

Not in the grasses,

But among a class of people,

Who built their houses with glasses.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

what a transformation for a typical african.

This poem is expressive of ones life. Thank you by the way for contacting me. Writing is an expression from within ones self. You have talent. If this were my work. I would consider changing the forth line, and reworking it. However, you do have a hidden talent. Explore it.

~~~I disagree with the one said it needs more rhythm. Understand, you don't always need flow to make a poem work... Poetry is simply creative thoughts & feelings put into words on paper. I believe it is fine....I love the title. It's kind of like a "ashy to classy" type of thing. I like it...I like it alot.~~~
