I wish I were a rose! Why is that you may ask? Well, at least, the rose’s thorns are visible. Mine are not! And, that’s my biggest problem. My weak spots, my bad habits and my meannesses are hidden within me. God knows, I try my best to suppress them but it’s a constant losing battle against my worst enemy, the devil within. No matter how hard I try, this little beast always finds devious ways to wreck my plans and lead me astray! My weakest spots are hidden within me and worst of all I don’t want others to notice them and eventually help me erase them. In fact, I do my best not to notice and try to erase them myself! Do you know why this sorry state of affairs occurs? Well, you guessed right! The ego is the culprit! That nasty part of me always tries its damndest to ruin my existence!
