Life's Reality

“FAILURE and SUCCESS” these are the two main objectives in our lives. SUCCESS If we don't know how to acknowledge, protect and handle carefully; it will deteriorate while FAILURE is where we learned thru painful and unforgetable bad experiences that leads us to struggle until we succeed. In a long journey of struggle to search for a better life, many times I tripped and fell. However, no matter how difficult it is life must go on, so i keep trying to put my feet back on the ground again and again but seems everything ends up in vain until one day while I had a long walk, I make a halt into a vast garden, watching those butterflies hovering on a beautiful and attractive flowers. It makes me feel something is strange. A realization appears on my vision then, excitedly i bend to pick-up a piece and hold it close to my sight down to my nose out of a sudden I was eager to find a mystery which is hidden from this flower known as;

“A Lesson from the Rose”
It is only a tiny rosebud
A flower of GOD'S design,
But I cannot unfold the petals
With this clumsy hands of mine…

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I
The flowers GOD opens so secretly
In my hands would fade and die…

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of GOD'S design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine…

So I'll trust HIM for his leading
Each moment of everyday,
And I look to HIM for guidance,
Each step of the pilgrim way…

For the pathway that lies before me,
My heavenly father know's
I'll trust HIM to reveal the secret,
Just as HE unfold the rose…
