Roses have thorns, so do people.

Roses

by cjhale

Roses are beautiful.

So are people.

But beauty is deceiving.

We don't see the thorns. We don't see the walls. We don't see the heart.

Every thorn, every wall,

Is hiding a beautiful person. A beautiful rose. And it's real.

But often that creature hiding in the dark,

Is broken. They have been frosted over and calloused. They haven't bloomed. They can't even see the light.

So sometimes we need to be a light.

We can direct that withering flower out of the darkness. And we might get hurt.

But thats what happens with thorns.

And one day, those thorns will be gone. And everything you've done will have been worth it. You saved a life. And true beauty has bloomed.

To you who can be a light.

Are you brave enough? Will you fight for a hurting soul? I will. Because that bloom is worth everything to me.

@michaelschulze your statement is so true, although sometimes what we think are flowers are actually weeds, so it takes a special kind of discernment to know the difference.

Sometimes we can't be sure if it's a flower or a weed until we give it attention and bring it into the light PLEASE DON'T IGNORE THE WEED IT MAY TURN OUT TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWER OF ALL

Charlie, you are a wonder. Your fecundity with verse and stanza is impressive, to say the least. Why your turn of a word, aline, or a phrase is magical.

Amazing message. It takes somebody special to fight and show your true side. And a special person to see that true side when the thorns are still all over
