Let my Life be a Bonsai Tree

Let my life be a bonsai tree,
and me its caretaker;
neatly and deliberately,
let me nurture and shape it,
transforming
its gnarly visage
and unruly tendencies
into veritable perfection;
let me safeguard it,
indoors,
so that it might someday flourish
-oh, my darling potted plant-
in the wilderness.
