Ambrosia Trifida

Hark! Be willing to concede;
The acrid rock, infecund soil.
The rapid growth of weed;
Causing men for hours to toil.

The resilient stems;
Bear ligneous base.
Incongruous nature;
Bear residual pace.

Hark! Be willing to recede;
Enrapture of marijuana.
Follow the call of instinct;
Resisting desire and greed.

A man void of principles;
Similar to soil sprouting weed.
Fear the wrath of the Lord;
Lest the soul starts to bleed.

Hark! Be willing to succeed;
The path to achieving goals.
Brace the vigor of raging storm;
Bursting within the fiery soul.

Through the tiniest cracks of hope;
In the absolute concrete.
Shines the promise of tomorrow;
Restraining from defeat.

  1. I had to look up AMBROSIA TRIFIDA. Not a weed I’ve paid much attention to before our poem, but now! I will pay attention to it, as if we should stop trying to decimate our only hope of a future. Thank you!

  2. Sanaa,

    Life can be difficult trying to control weeds, which frequently manage to break through the toughest of concrete..Their desire to survive and to find a sustainable setting, defies our intentions at times, to eradicate them…References to life and living work well too.

    A lesson to not be taken lightly – the weeds do make a mess of our lives.

  6. What a delicious and hopeful view of a weed. I use the word even though I do not agree with the concept. Nature favours weeds and we pull them out only because they are of no use to us πŸ™
