A Rose is A Rose


As a thorn pricks your finger while gardening, does it not protect the plant from what it believes to be a hostile environment?  



You may curse the thorn for its existence 
and yet it did nothing wrong.  

It served its purpose.  
It let you know it was there.  

You felt the pain of it, 
it drew blood after all. 

But did you 
stop to reflect on its beauty?
