We know who we are..do you ?

Taking on daily challenges...part of LIFE

Living with the " QUIRKS" in the Garden of Life... | Source

some are flowers, some are weeds...which are you ?



We come from seeds, both flowers and me…

But there is a difference between us you see…

As a flower has needs and special care…

Such as good rich soil, sun, water and air…

When weather turns bad and gets very cold…

The flower will wilt and start to look old…

I on the other hand suffer from much greater deeds…

Like poison, salt and herbicides.... .let’s kill the weeds !

But unlike the flowers, which may not return…

I the weed will stand tall and firm..

I may not re-appear in the garden you see…

Cause unlike the flower, I can choose to be..

Growing in sunlight or shade under a tree..

Even a crack in a sidewalk or a brick wall...

Regardless of options, it's always my call....

We both help mankind in various ways..

as many are using all natural these days...

So the next time you walk in the “garden of life”..

Take note of the “weeds” who are survivors of life…..


This was dedicated to all those who have survived the dysfunctions of life .....

      Weeds are flowers too, depending on the point of view. Very clever way to say the wisdoms of life indeed.

      Howdy kj (kj force) - Thanks for this poem with more than one message. Weeds are where it's at. Look at a weed's flower, sometimes so plain or even unsightly at first, but use a magnifying glass or more. those things have real beauty to add to their tenaciousness.

      very clever indeed.Thought you might like this: my company wanted jasmine that will grow indoors and on the 36th floor. I put aside "the books" and the exec got his jasmine.

      This was funny. But those weed between the lines wanted to take us to higher levels that we cannot stand for creativity. Your humor and wit exudes gratifying fun with no end. Have a nice rest my friend!
