"All This Land" Original Poem

Updated: Feb 11


I’ve​ ​got​ ​all​ ​this​ ​land​ ​for​ ​planting,

All​ ​this​ ​land​ ​for​ ​growth.

There​ ​are​ ​seeds​ ​and​ ​seeds,​ ​so​ ​many,

But​ ​which​ ​ones​ ​will​ ​profit​ ​me​ ​the​ ​most?

Which​ ​ones​ ​shall​ ​I​ ​let​ ​grow?

One​ ​will​ ​rise​ ​and​ ​give​ ​fruits​ ​of​ ​peace,

And​ ​another​ ​fruits​ ​of​ ​joy​ ​you​ ​see.

But​ ​then,​ ​oh​ ​then,​ ​we​ ​have​ ​the​ ​weeds

And​ ​certainly,​ ​they​ ​must​ ​go.

Right?

I​ ​think​ ​to​ ​myself,​ ​it​ ​can’t​ ​cause​ ​harm

To​ ​let​ ​one​ ​lone​ ​weed

Grow​ ​tall​ ​and​ ​strong.

So,​ ​foolishly​ ​I​ ​let​ ​it​ ​stay,

Only​ ​to​ ​find​ ​that​ ​I​ ​was​ ​wrong

One​ ​weed,​ ​was​ ​then​ ​two

And​ ​then​ ​turned​ ​into​ ​several,

Their​ ​roots​ ​dug​ ​down​ ​deep

Entangling​ ​each​ ​other

Much​ ​more​ ​than​ ​I​ ​could​ ​manage

It​ ​took​ ​me​ ​months​ ​to​ ​fully​ ​combat​ ​the​ ​damage.

I​ ​tell​ ​you​ ​this​ ​so​ ​you’ll​ ​be​ ​prudent

Guard​ ​your​ ​land

Watch​ ​what​ ​you​ ​plant​ ​and

Decide​ ​what​ ​you​ ​let​ ​grow

Be​ ​weary​ ​of​ ​those​ ​small​ ​things

And​ ​be​ ​quick​ ​to​ ​uproot​ ​them

You’re​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​find​ ​little​ ​weeds

That​ ​try​ ​to​ ​hide

Show​ ​them​ ​no​ ​mercy,

Don’t​ ​let​ ​them​ ​rise

You’ve​ ​got​ ​all​ ​this​ ​land​ ​for​ ​planting

All​ ​this​ ​land​ ​for​ ​growth

You’ve​ ​got​ ​seeds​ ​and​ ​seeds​ ​so​ ​many

But​ ​which​ ​ones​ ​will​ ​profit​ ​you​ ​the​ ​most?

Which​ ​ones​ ​will​ ​you​ ​let​ ​grow?
