Inherit the Rose

Inherit the Rose

.

“In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”
― Eric Hoffer

You can play the game

of life

by the numbers

as others have played it before you

doing as they did

because things work that way

so they say

or

you can play it your way

passionately favouring your colourful style

dealing your own hand

doing things

in your own order

or

you can play the joker

the adventure card

let life playfully

steer you

wherever it may.

.

There will always be things to learn

unlearn

relearn

the rose will always have

thorns and shadows

and beautiful blooms

which explode unexpectedly

showering you with their petals.
