The Weed


The brave weed seed
Found a crack of soil--
Not leafy loam,
But dirt blown in
Within an asphalt lot.

And so it grew between the cars,
A little spot of green.

I could have pulled
That stubborn weed.
It's just a weed,
Yet brave.

I left it there,
That little weed,
And it left me
Pondering my lot.


His heart was courageous in the ways of the Lord. ... (Jeremiah 17:6)
