I Wish I was a Tomato Plant

Even as a little sprout, they know they should grow tomatoes.

There is no wondering and pondering.

Only the intent to grow, bloom and produce TOMATOES.

There is no questioning of flower color, shape or size.

They do not debate adding an eggplant for color, or an onion for flavor.

They only know to grow TOMATOES.

They don’t beseech the sky with no reply, “What should I be?”.

They do not doubt their tomato-ness.

There is no debate on their purpose in life.

They just do their thing, which is growing TOMATOES.

I envy their single-minded confidence.
