Life is a Garden of Roses and Thorns
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar
Bookmark and Share
 
Life is a garden of both roses and thorns 
But beauty grows up in rows and throes

Roses rise up from the thorns and thistles
By blunting all their spines and prickles

With easy wafts of fragrance on the earth
They prove their eternal worth and mirth

Life is thorny and bitter but always better
Greater than those, fallen in a dirty gutter

Leaves, pale and frail, may wither and fall
But seeds sprout up by hugging the squall

Only a breath of fresh air is all they need
To beautify the earth with what they breed

Life is not a bed of roses; let them so say
Love winnows all the thorns from our stay.
