I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.

I am a pesky weed…
I am a dandelion
Most see me as exasperating
Most see me as good-for-nothing
Most try getting rid of me
While they do not know me
Youth grabs ahold of my stem
I am pulled from my pesky roots
Then they blow on me
And all of me goes afloat
I fly in the air wild and free
There will soon be more of me!

The author's comments:

When I was in elemenatry school, I was scolded when I plucked a dandelion from the ground and I blew on it because it causes there to be more weeds. I have always viewed blowing on a dandelion as blowing a wish, so the message of my poem is that you will face adversity in following your dreams, but that is what gives us determination to go on and conquer our dreams.
