Title: thorns
Post by Michael on Jan 14th, 2006 at 7:32pm
Thorns

thorns
protecting the rose

where were my dam thorns
to keep them away

where were my dam thorns
to tear at their skin

safety
was there such a place

who is safe? where am I safe?
not very many safe places

trust
who do I trust

the rose
with its beauty and its thorns

I must create a safe place
and learn who to trust

Good work, Michael.

Sorry you had to go through the pain it took to write this.

Michael,

I LOVE IT - it says so much.

I agree - learning to trust is such a difficult thing. I still haven't learned to trust as of yet.
