Need Be a WEED...
Inspiration comes in many forms...sometimes it can be HUMOR...
A weed is a plant considered undesirable in a particular situation, "a plant in the wrong place".
Commonly plants unwanted in human-controlled settings ...




NEED BE A WEED...
Outside the box, I always thought…
Always questioned the answers I was taught…

Teachers pulled straws, upon seeing my name…
They didn’t relish playing my game…

Who wants that stress in their life…
And all that anguish and forget the strife…

As I moved along through my years…
Relinquishing all my doubts and fears..
I came to realize as I grew…
There was a difference between me and you…

When the weather got cold…and the Sun didn’t shine…
The rain ceased to be…and I was just fine…
But your leaves and flowers shriveled …
You became a dried stalk….

I on the other hand, found myself a new home…
As I put down roots in the crack of a sidewalk…

So the moral of my story is this…
If you only have but one wish…
Don’t live your life ,..fulfilling everyone else’s needs…
Remember that you too can choose to live as a “WEED “…
