Thorns Diminished

I know there are thorns on my way
But, I dreamt of a life without them
Now I’ve learnt to live with them
Still dreaming of a life of roses
My eyes have witnessed the calmness of
Wet nights that swept away my dreams
I even heard them say that tougher
Moments have essence of happiness
But, I could only wait to count
On them, where are they, have I
Annoyed them, why they have turned
Off me!
I plea a rendezvous with happiness,
I long for embracement with my unseen
friend. I have essence of hope with me
And I believe I am closer to my goal
For I know I could defeat sorrow
And win a friend for myself
