Green Patch

      we should not
   call them weeds
(respecting life)

      they may not
   be so welcome
in our yards

      but they
   announce it
springtime

when it's right.
   a time comes
   when we grow

green in that
summer light
   and glow

      such beauty 
   as is in us,
that it shows


if we are weeds,
   unwanted and
      unloved

   we should be
   so determined,
push and shove

   grow strong
      and thrive
in our own way

"show personality"
      is what they
   like to say!

   we all are
      beautiful, 
somewhere inside

      something 
really wonderful,
   we cannot hide
