It’s a Weed!

They often say
if you do this
this will happen
and if you follow
my advice
this will happen
or this…

If, however,
you read
that newest book
the way
would certainly be clear
for you
to accomplish
great things
no matter
your current
situation.

Sitting on
The Bench
this morning
she tapped my left shoulder
and asked,
“What about that weed,
over there.”

I turned my head
and gave it a look.

“It’s a weed.”

“I know,”
she replied
as she turned
to give it another look.

“But think
what it has been through
and what it has learned
without
paying a cent.”

“It’s a weed.”

“Ok.
Think of yourself
as a weed and
what it takes
for you to grow
into who and what
you are today.”

“How much money
and time
and effort
has been spent
to accomplish that feat?”

“It’s a weed.”

“In your life
how much money
have you spent
to try to figure out
how to live a better life
how to be a better person
how to love yourself
and others?”

“It’s a weed.”

“It’s more than a weed,
it’s a lesson.”
