Roses Will Only Smile

morningroses

i shall imagine life

is not worth dying if
(and when)roses complain
their beauties are in vain

but though mankind persuades
itself that every weed’s
a rose roses(you feel
certain)will only smile
~e.e.cummings

 

only the Rose knows
a life is worth His dying ~
only He, through His pain,
transforms each weed of us
to a thing of beauty.
Smiling in His knowing, such death
is never in vain.

  1. Beautiful thoughts, EPG.

    “…only He…transforms each weed of us…”

    Often, I think that we perceive this act of transformation — this act of cleansing and restoration — is too painful for us to undergo. We are afraid to accede to his saving ministration, to rein in our will power and let Him do what He knows we need to make us whole, to make our souls beautiful once again.
