what am i?

in a village
the trees, the shrubs, the weeds , the wild flowers
grow with relaxed ease
no competition, no need to achieve perfection or be meaningful
they just exist
there is Simplicity in the chaotic complexity
that soothes any onlooker

in a city
plants are bred in captivity
they are not unique, but one among many
fed and watered in clinical doses
they have the intrinsic need to look good without flaws
standing in  order where they are supposed to be
pruned and proud

what are you
a tree in the wilderness?
or a plant in a pot?
