Life Is A Weed

Life is a weed.
It flourishes,
Everywhere.
In jungles,
In deserts,
In the cracks,
Of city sidewalks.
It springs up,
And takes firm root.
Quickly becoming,
Lord and master.
And then,
It goes to seed.
Spreading itself,
All over creation.
Then,
Just like that,
It dies.
But,
It lives on,
In places,
Too numerous,
To count.
Places dear friends,
That one day,
It touched.
There are many weeds,
Growing,
In my heart, and soul.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Thank you Jono. I thought the last three lines were pretty easy to understand. But then again my thinking process is well, different.

    Wonderfully written, but somehow the last part didn't have much effect on me.
