The Rose and The Thorn
beauty and pain~
Roses are formed one leaf at a time, a stem, a petal, a thorn;
While on them the rain falls, the sun shines, all the day long.
A timely Sprig, a green shoot at first, then comes the sprouting of the rose-bud:
Why the thorn? Why the thistle? A parallel of life,
That pain creates the value of the beauty we possess..
As life flows through its central veins, the leaves uncurl, the rosebud unfolds,
The flower is made, revealing a beautiful image sublime:
Now even the rough thorns come into focus, making majestic beautiful sense;
all is for a purpose, and the whole story is told.
As the glory of the flower, our lives are the same, the beauty of the rosebud,
erasing the pains with the thorns; enduring life’s winds and hurricanes,
letting the beauty of the rose play in our heart a happy song..
