Thorns Are Friend Of Roses - Poem by Aftab Alam

Sweetness in life is far better than honey,
Bitterness in life, a poison; isn't it funny?
When I rest on the lovely bed; on the Rose,
I am aware of the thorns; their pinning dose,

Thorns are friend of roses; never harm them,
For I know; It is for the safety; a lesson gem,
Ah! Thorn in life; the sorrow is not to bleed,
It is, the love protected shield, we must heed


We are the victim of our own unmeasured folly
A vagabond, a tourist; lost in greedy - earthly Jolly,
Why we forget the limitations of breezy-enjoyment,
Under heaven, the misty envelop; the firmament?

Come, let us clean the curtain of translucent mist
Define life as per your own list but this is the gist
