Thorns and Roses

Updated: Sep 13, 2022

Roses are red my love Violets are purple and deeply blue Sugar is tricky sweet and dangerous Pretty hurts... like thorn covered roses thorn covered roses...

I find this to be true throughout the pain spectrum.

As we can see with worthwhile achievements like, spiritual growth, healthy self-relationships (relationship with self), romantic relationships, parenting, weight control, business success...

And at the other end of this spectrum, we can ask any woman, teetering on a stiletto world, trying to squeeze herself into the glass slipper of shallow and sharp societal demands on what a “pretty woman” looks like, how painful is “pretty”?

So today, I pray like it’s my dying breath to be at peace with my beautiful self LOVE is beautiful

Joy is gorgeous 

LOVE is kind,

Kindness is lovely

and Peace is truly sweet

Even while bearing the pain of loneliness in refusal to conform to anything that betrays or deforms my self-worth, today...

I invoke my-inner-trust and self-knowing, I am free to be, have and flow in my vibrant uniqueness, and divine being.

Today, I pray, invite and invoke my courage to live a disciplined life, that I may enjoy pretty things, while being grounded in all that I Am. I Am, an answered prayer, I Am LOVE, I Am bodacious in faith & self-designed. I Am radiant from within!

While success is sweet “Pretty” hurts... like thorn covered roses
