If you ever try to pluck a rose from its bush, you will always be concerned about hurting yourself with the thorns.
Likewise, this poem details the look and the duties of a thorn, towards its beloved ‘Flower’. It is written in a very simple language. It explains about the thorns dedication towards protecting its love from the external factors that may harm it. It takes the least input of any kind in this process and stands strong in protection till it is removed by an external force.
This poem places a beautiful analogy between the thorn and the rose as body and the soul respectively. If thorn is the body it protects our soul from all the materialistic harms that our body faces during a lifetime and keeps the soul unharmed and protected.
