Even Out Of Dark And Dirt Beauty Can Grow

Under a roof of roses in my garden
I drink my morning coffee
write my poems, dream and
look at the stars and moon at night
I cherish those beautiful flowers of love
I wear them proudly in my hair
And they make me smell of roses

I thought my roses bloom so beautifully
because of all the love I feed them
How wrong was I….

One evening when I took a shower
suddenly all the water came up
from all the drains in the house
and as well from the toilet

In a panic I called a repairman
And already quickly he made the diagnosis:
the problem was in the sewage
outside under my garden:
The roots of my rosebush had grown
into the pipe and had caused the obstruction

So all the time I had thought
my roses grew on love
where in fact,
they grew on shit

Though it does give hope
Even out of dark and dirt
beauty can grow

  1. So so true.. often the most beautiful and amazing things come out from unexpected ends.. negativities always bring out positivities around us.. light can be seen in darkness only..
