pulling weedsMature

pulling weeds

this weed here, it is not needed
pluck it from the dry, white earth
leaving the ground sore and bare
where one is removed
another shoot grows again
a perfectly futile pastime
pull another weed from the ground
ignore the ones who watch you
they do not understand, anyways
some say gardening is like therapy
pulling weeds, yes, it seems to soothe the soul
but only for a moment
pain is involved in this
but is that not why you do it?
is the pain not the driving factor?
people have said they like your hair
but you pluck it in the name of self-harm
yes, one day, you will regret pulling the weeds...

The End
