Tend to your mind like a garden.
If you do not put in the daily work to pluck your weeds
they will eventually overtake your medium.
You cannot exist on a plain of uncertainty
no more than the wildflowers.
Do not settle for a cooped-up pot when you could
stretch out your roots to their fullest potential.
Your stems are most beautiful untrimmed,
and no beauty can last long as a possession.
A single rose does not sit idly and dream to become a bush,
it merely grows.
And you can till the soil and change your approach,
but you still can’t ask a cactus to thrive in a rose garden.
