The Death of Weeds

I sit in my garden
And plant my seeds
Oh god give me a pardon
For now I have to pull the weeds

One by one they all come out
The plants that were there before
So that my seeds have room to sprout
But killing those weeds I abhor

I shouldn’t feel that bad
They would have died eventually
But I cant escape feeling sad
There the same as me essentially

Their death can give one thing
To the world they leave behind
A chance for new life to spring
I hope in death they will be kind

Now my seeds have grown indeed
And with the new room I have provided
Have flourished without a weed
And when I saw this my sadness subsided

    thought provoking, a weed is merely a plant some where you don't want it to be ;) Sometimes, lotsa times they're tasty too! Light & Love
