Life: A Bed of Roses

There it was, life:
rose petals showered
on a bed,
so beautifully red.
Red, red, red,
and under, unhindered
was a knife.

      Thank you for reading and for your lovely thoughts Ada Wiam. Indeed, life is a constant struggle between setbacks… But I guess that is what makes it worth living as well. 🙂
