Another poem of mine. Comment of you like it, please.

    I smell the grill
    And see the tree's leaves swaying in the wind
    And it reminds me of the hill
    I used to live on
    But everything's different now
    I think of the green lawn
    And the cool breeze
    I would feel as I walked in the backyard
    The palm tree leaves
    Large, beautiful and swaying
    Blue sky
    Chalk always marking
    Every available surface outside
    That nice neighborhood
    With the park beside
    A year ago
    I thought I would be there forever
    But life says no
    And things might be different
    Nothing stays the same
    But that place's rent
    In all probability belongs to another
    So what use is saying "if only?"
    I should just 'deal with it' like a brother or father or mother or sister
    Might say
    I don't even like that saying!
    Nothing is changing today
    I could keep on thinking "if only"
    But why should I
    When it does nothing, you see
    Although I might want to
    And I might unconsciously be doing it
    I'm trying to not do
