Stop Watering The Weeds

Stop Watering The Weeds

Seeing the seasons
come and go
waiting and watching
wondering
if I’d ever know
 
Preparing myself
purging and clearing
Nothing to do now
but wait
for your appearing
 
That what is asked for
will certainly come
Patience is a virtue
Focusing positively
This is not yet done
 
The road to fulfillment
not for the faint of heart,
is paved with obstacles
Mistakes easily made
When blindly taking part
 
Watering the weeds
considering all possible
A trap laid by despondency
Stop and take the time
The behavior illogical
 
Waiting, trusting
you have heard the call
I am ready
Your arrival now imminent
I have let down the wall

      Thanks Lisa. It was just a reminder to focus on what we want in life. The watering of the weeds is a metaphor for wasted efforts on things and people that will never help us reach our goals 🙂💕

        Ah ok. I was thinking you had someone specific in mind, like a bad boy 🙂
