I’m just a weed

Growing high and tall in your yard

I may be a nuisance

But where I’ve grown and flourished

Is the only place I’ve ever known

I hope you understand

That I’ve spent my whole life

Building myself

Making myself stronger

As I grow thorns and a solid core

But in the end

I’m just not strong enough

You could just so easily break the stalk of me

Or even worse

Pull me out of the very ground

That I’ve come to know as home

Does this make you cruel?

Of course not

I was always just a nuisance

Nothing more
