Every time

Every time, I kiss a rose,

A thorn pricks me.

The rose says,

‘I am beauty.’

And the thorn replies,

‘Behind every beauty,

There is a thorn.

Let the power of pain

Touch you

Before the power of beauty

Mesmerizes you.’

    Love and beauty can not be denied. But when love mixes with beauty it thrills with supreme pain. Love of thorn for rose is highly commendable. It always protects from all evils.
