By Any Other Name by – Paul Malécot

“…By Any Other Name…”

Be not so afraid
of “getting it wrong.”

that you get nothing

for it is

in our mistakes

that we are truly human

It is thru our “humanness”

that we may find again

our innocence

for only as children

can we taste the Rose

without even

the awareness of thorns

which are but

our own paranoia

For, We are the Rose…..

– Paul Malécot
