There’s a Hidden Name in Every Thorn

el camino, roses 7th March, 2013 040

Every time we hurt someone,

Every time we turn away,

Every time we distance ourselves,

Causes more anguish … we have an urgent need to pray.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

For each little cruel, silent thought,

And each little unseen smirk,

Each little share in ‘innocent’ gossip,

Causes pain in the everlasting Father’s work.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

And we are all at some time guilty,

And we have all caused others to mourn,

So look very closely at the rose that presents,

For there’s a hidden name in every thorn.
