I keep the thorn behind me
Holding it because it’s real to me
I keep the thorn  away from sight
For better is what’s ahead than what’s behind.


I’ll keep holding on no matter how long
It may prick hard
It may prick even deeper
But it will definitely wither.


My eye is still fixed on what is ahead
Whether I’m pricked
Whether I’m hurt
But for the better place, I look ahead.

    What inspired what? The picture the poem or the poem the picture?

    All the same, both of them are just perfect. Bless you, Miz!
