Soul in a Rose

I sat in my desolation

Withdrawn from all around,

Feeling my life was a ruin, a failure.

I was empty inside with the utter collapse of my being.

I did not care anymore for living or dying.

I was alone in my distress and desolation.

But as I sat sadly on the ground,

The sun reached out his hand to me and touched my face. And so my healing began.
