The Rose, Completely Appreciated

It is the same beautiful, sweet thorny rose received in both celebration of life and sorrow of death.

Received in life; a tendency to be consumed of beautiful, sweet possibilities, ignoring the thorns of death that must accompany.
Received in death, feeling only the pierce of thorns; in tears, drowning the sweetness and blurring the beauty of a more glorious life.

To be wise, is to appreciate the complete rose received in celebration of life.
To be at peace is to appreciate it when received in sorrow of death.
