The Thorny Rose of Time

We hold The Rose of Time too tight,

To our expectations and desires

What we think must happen, when, where and how

What ‘should’ and ‘shouldn’t’ be done by the hour.

Loosen our tight grip on the thorny Rose of Time

Stop fighting against its predictable sound.

A verse from my poem The Rose of Time.
