THORNS OR ROSES, by                    
First Line: Life had only thorns for me
Last Line: And find the rose.
Subject(s): Flowers; Life; Roses; Thorns

Life had only thorns for me --
Or so I thought;
I chided life because it kept
The rose I sought.

But these were only thorns for me,
Until I chose
To break them one by one myself
And find the rose.
