Thicket

.

For some time my mind was sick

Lost myself in the thicket!

Briars more bramble than rosehip

Darkly dense, barbed and wicked

.

When tangled in a thicket

One’s self becomes conflicted

Whose hooks keep you restricted?

Whose brambles entwine constricted?

.

It took quite an effort to unpick

My Houdini escape to elicit

To understand, others where complicit

Their hawthorn so cruelly exquisite

.

Now less encumbered I sit

A rose in a garden well lit

I see my confusion was requisite

To keeping their barbs well hid

.

So please come take root for a bit

Though I ask, your brambles you snip

Grow with me, and of my journey sip

And know that, as roses will still prick

.
