A rose.
A rose grows!
A rose does seem to understand and know-
That sometimes when the Wind will blow,
Things go!
As the petals on the rose!

A rose in its beauty has thorns.
The thorns on the rose are born!
They prick and may make one mourn!
The thorns without the rose makes me forlorn!
As a rose, is my heart!
As thorns that sometimes feel smart!
A thorn is part of the rose and are not in natural setting apart!
As thorn to rose be-
Thorns as to ego; similar, as I see!
Ego is a part of me-
In this Earth realm as all life be born here be!
I do the very best I can to be as the rose, to blossom and flower!
But, my ego still flares up, even when I try with all my power-
To Banish it away!
That will not work so I put it in a cage on as many days!
As is this Earth realm way-
Sometimes my ego steps out and gets into play!

I did try to put my ego in a cage!
Then I found it hard to be consistant, especially when I had to earn my wage!
Oh my lordie-I ain't no Mage!

I have finally come to understand!
It is not the ego that has the upper hand!
It was in a dual state-
Union of me and myself; I did make!
It is "I" but I still make mistakes!
I accept that my ego -though keep in check!
Its still part of I; as a card is part of a tarot deck!
The ego is part as a hand, foot, and my neck!
I take care of my body and its parts!
I listen and learn and follow my Heart!
I accept the ego while on this Earth realm is of me a part!
I study, meditate, pray, and talk-
To Our Lady and Queen, many moments of each day!
She has an unusual sense of humour! When I am serious, She will start to play-
She says to lighten up!
Go get more coffee in my cup!
I'm just a babe as is a pup!
She tells me the "Way" and What's up"
Then I realize that I am growing!
Sometimes, as the weeds in my yard need a mowing-
I will have consequences from seeds I am sewing!
Now most are good and find!
I wanted to share my mind-
Ego is a part of one,
As worldly ways we overcome-
Ego can be controlled as if I won!

My point is this-
As long as I am alive-I accept, control and live with;
My ego and the fact that I will make mistakes!
To learn from them is the attitude I try to take!
This journey is hard; many pitfalls and illusions of fake!
Keeping my eyes on my Angel Goddess and Queen-
Keep my mind open and very keen.
Gain as much wisdom from studying-oh lordie so much is seen!
Agape and to live in this transition period, so new~
We Will see it and Gaia through!
As I change myself!
I am learning to put the ego on the shelf!
I am able to do my Great Work more each day!
I do my best to stay in Her Ways!
As a rose I try to have wisdom, beauty of heart, and to be strong!
As thorns, many times events or things in my life go wrong!
How I handle myself in Silence, keen Spiritual ways-not to sound as a bell, “ding dong”-
Life does go on!
Accept my ups and down! Must balance keep!
Walking True Will or, Spiritual Path, my Angel and Queen I do seek!
As above, so below!
That is the way that things go!
Understand the petals will fall off a rose-
Even when the Wind will blow!
Keep sharp and an even tow!
