Be Like the Rose!

Be like the rose!

Be like the rose
Give forth that which soothes
Every true seeker’s eye and heart
Like the rose flower be your reputation
Bear a magnanimous glow of tenderness
For such will be others’
For their admiration and picking
And yours’ the privilege so great
When the season so allows

Be like the rose
Cling to that which prickles
Every false seeker’s hand and heart
Like the rose thorns be your character
Bear the unchangeable star of righteousness
For that must be your conviction
To govern the principals within
And others to serve faithfully
In and out of season keep the thorns
