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.....
