Thorns

A rose of perfection
Is not without thorns.
An ocean majestic
Is not without storms.
A sky full of sunshine
Is not without rain.
A love that is blissful
Is not without pain.
A life that is happy
Is not without tears.
A person of courage
Is not without fears.
Its the trials of the journey
That teach us to see
Life’s beauty and virtue,
Yes, they hold the key.
It’s the prick of the thorns,
If truth would be told,
That calls our attention
To the blooms they enfold.
It’s the vast ocean’s fury
And power of the tide
That inspires awareness
Smooth sailing might hide.
The thorns of the rose,
Like the ocean's great surge,
Through purpose announce
Thus their beauties emerge.
Let us celebrate thorns,
Though their prick may be hard...
They are stationed in life
As the King's royal bard.
