The small planet symbolizes an inner world of each person. The asteroid B612 is the Little Prince’s own world which shelters his own love, his sentimental values. The planet contains of gigantic Baobabs trees whose roots could split the prince’s tiny planet into pieces. The little prince notes that one must be very careful to take care of one’s planet. Since all planets have good plants and bad plants, one must remain disciplined, uprooting the bad plants as soon as they start to grow. The baobab seeds pose a threat on the planet like the “bad seed” implanted in people‘s mind that most people deal with without even being aware of. The little prince tries to keep his world in order, and the baobabs, the trees that take all the ground and water for themselves, are the sort of wrong or selfish desires that could destroy the planet, if not kept under control. The rose, on the other hand, is a good seed. She makes his life beautiful. The rose embellishes his life and is also the precious essence inside himself that he tries to preserve and cultivate. The small planet is an isolated world where the Little Prince indulges himself with his own amusement. He took time out of every day to watch at least one sunset. Because of this, his life was meaningful and worthwhile. That amusement fulfills his spiritual life, but it is also an implication of his lonely life that is in need of a true companion, a heart-to-heart bond that most people are longing for.
