Choices are Options with Consequences

There are many survivors of Life's indignities...and it's your choice to chose weed or flower...

I See Dandelions More Like Flowers, Than Weeds..

As far back as I can remember i knew something was different.. I did not think or react as others and always thought outside the box. So as I grew older I began to think more and more outside the box, which is hard when you work in a structured world, such as the Medical Field. I connected with "weeds", those strong, intrusive plants that gardeners hate.

I wrote a book on "weeds" to signify what I had observed over the years, in dealing with people and using the metaphor " weeds/ flowers " in reference to them...regarding the comparison and similarities of weeds versus flowers... In order to have a garden, we need the butterflies, bugs, birds, flowers and weeds. to feed off each other. What we take care of, and in what order, and amount of passion is up to us.. BUT remove any one of these components and we have no garden.
Some are flowers...some are weeds..I chose the weed....The definition of a weed is any plant considered troublesome, useless,or unattractive,especially one growing freely where it is not wanted,as in a garden or other cultivated ground.....
Flowers and weeds, both grow in soil and need the sunlight and rain, however if conditions change, the flower will die BUT the weed will live on. You can pull it out,you can poison it but the weed is a strong willed plant and will return time and time again, sometimes it will even grow in a crack in the sidewalk...hopefully now you can see why I relate to the weed.....
Many of us are survivors in one shape or form in our life, but we can't let it consume us.If we choose to live as a weed we can overcome any obstacles,we let nothing stand in our way . Whether you choose to put your roots in the crack of the sidewalk or in the garden with the flowers, reach for the sky and stand proud as your blosssoms are just as beautiful... and most people wouldn't know the difference between a "flower" and a "weed" anyway..
The beauty is in the eyes of the" grow" with it..weed by choice...

I'm surprised no one else has commented. I'm akin with you regarding weeds. From the strength of my perception I have always considered weeds, plant and human, to be of worth and encouraged them to venture out and grow. While I have been known to hand weed out competition so that the very best can survive, I've also been known to support those with no chance without my support. Some may see this as contradictory. But I see it as a way to overcome broad brush approaches like Goldwater's famous "defoliate them" in reference to the Vietnamese countryside and how we could win the war by removing the forest cover with Agent Orange and napalm. We all know where that led to.

As farmers and city dwellers alike seek "easy" ways to eradicate unsightly weeds with products like Roundup, leading to the death of bees, bats, and colors other insects along with the plants that support them, eventually poisoning our food stocks and us. All in the name of convenience and "progress." In the end, the weeds will survive long after us.
