I once had a garden
that only blossomed on dark thoughts –
but they needed constant attention,
and one day I decided I had better things to do.
so I dug it all up,
began planting something new –
an appreciation –
and still, those need constant attention,
but they’re blooming.
they’re blooming every day.
I pluck my weeds when I wake up,
and nurture the flowers that start to wilt.
and that, has made all the difference.
