No Bed of Roses

No Bed of Roses

No Bed of Roses

Life was going to be
a walk in the park,

starting in a garden,
amidst roses,
beds and bouquets.

But, nothing comes easy,
and beauty is in perception.

Want and need are not
the same.

Satisfaction.
Theirs diverged.

Many years would pass before they realized
the walk ended when they left the garden.
