Gardener at Heart - Book Two

Armed


I will fight the thing that says no.

I will fight it with flowers

And with my footsteps

And with this beautiful little stone.


The thing that says no

At all the wrong times

And never says yes, ever,

I will fight with this little song I have made up

And this little plant I am watering.

I will get my broom and dustpan

And fight again.


I will contemplate this tree growing straight

And this tree growing like a dancer.

I will take a drink of fresh water,

Hitch up my jeans,

And fight the thing that says no.


I will fail again and again.

But I will fight.

And I will find the path.
