Poem4. My Mighty Man

My Mighty Man

With full heart I prayed to God ,
to give a partner friend.
With full love ,back HE replied;
with his choice, my husband.

Yes, he is my Mighty man,
the answer from my God.
But as the roses has thorn;
he has anger around.

With all the anger, swinging moods,
He is there for me,
Knew for sure that God has blessed ,
with His choice for me.

Yet, at times with swinging moods,
I do blame my Lord,
Thorns near so loving flowers,
why you give,my God?

Even though so loving flower,
can’t show your love.
For a moment if you don't care,
thorns will get to you.

Thorns protects from harm the roses,
a natural defense.
May be anger, God’s defense;
to protect,Mighty man so dear.

Ellen aka Ella said...

I love how you wove the anger and love in the pain and beauty the rose symbolizes! Powerful~

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Good metaphor for love and pain....roses and thorns. Also the thorns on roses........the ugly in the beautiful:)

Great point from Ella - a well woven poem.

A strong and honest poem, and your analogy using roses and thorns is a good one.

Like Mary and Carrie, I too applaud the honesty within your words.
The example of the rose with flower and thorns was a great idea.
Thank you for sharing your words Rashmi.
