I tossed you a rose
You caught it, then winced and bled
Uh oh… were there thorns?
About the poem:
Sometimes we think we are giving pure love. But, it’s not received that way. Hmm. That happens. There’s no use getting stuck in guilt.
Just learn from the experience, and think twice before repeating the same action. You can’t always predict other’s reactions. Allow the fact that either you really did something wrong, or the other person may be reacting to some unhealed wound or complicating issues you don’t know about.
Either way, learn, forgive, take healing steps, and stay loving. That’s enough.
